NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - A popular water park in Little Rock has decided to cancel all future adults-only nights after some became unruly and several fights broke out at a recent event.

Chris Schillcutt, general manager of Wild River Country, said the Saturday event started to get out of hand when nearly 2,000 people lined up to buy tickets around 7 p.m. Tickets were available for 1,500.

Sgt. Brian Dedrick said an off-duty police officer reported the event was getting out of control before the doors opened at 8:30 p.m. According to Dedrick, officers reported a lot of drinking and “too many fights to count” at the event.

Schillcutt said at one point a man ran up to a ticket window where a teenage employee was working and stole a stack of tickets.

Police made one arrest for public intoxication.
