AKRON, Ohio (AP) - Police say a rowdy crowd near the University of Akron threw bottles at officers while they tried to break up several big parties over the weekend.

Officers say they deployed tear gas and pepper spray just after midnight Sunday.

About a dozen people were arrested. One man was taken into custody after police say he threw a beer bottle and then kicked and dented a patrol cruiser.

Police were called to the area near University of Akron to shut down the parties that had drawn about 4,000 people.

Several cars were damaged during the disturbance.
