MIAMI BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Police say they had to shut down a portion of a busy Miami Beach street for more than an hour because of unruly spring break revelers.

Miami Beach police tell news outlets that a large crowd migrated from off the beach Friday night and onto Ocean Drive, resulting in small fights and thrown objects as cars were stuck in the roadway.

Police spokesman Ernesto Rodriguez says a few people were arrested, but no one was seriously hurt. It is unclear how many people were taken into custody or what charges they are facing.

Rodriguez says back-up units that had arrived to deal with the crowds were able to be called off within a few hours.
