FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) - Police arrested dozens of people who they say came to Fort Lauderdale Beach on Memorial Day to cause trouble.

According to local television news reports, bridges leading to the beach were shut down late Monday afternoon as Fort Lauderdale police officers and Broward County Sheriff’s deputies made arrests.

Detective DeAnna Greenlaw says the people who were involved in the skirmish came to the beach on Monday “to cause a problem.” She says there were reports of people reaching into vehicles, striking drivers, and jumping on top of taxi cabs.

Officials say no tourists, residents or law enforcement officers were injured.
