PROVO, Utah (AP) - Two attendees of Saturday’s Spanish Fork festival of colors face charges after one was accused of throwing colored cornstarch on an officer and another was accused of selling drugs.

The Utah County Sheriff’s Office says 18-year-old Cory Sutterfield of Sandy threw dyed cornstarch on a sheriff’s deputy in a crosswalk.

Attendees at the Holi Festival of Colors throw colored corn starch in the air every hour at the festival, but law enforcement do not participate.

The Daily Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1jwkbzL ) Sutterfield faces four charges, including disorderly conduct and criminal mischief.

Officers also arrested 18-year-old Tanner McBride of Herriman at the festival after an officer reported finding marijuana, paraphernalia and cash in the teenager’s car. McBride faces seven charges.

Jail records show both men were still in custody Tuesday morning.
