PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — Police arrested seven people in Providence overnight following a disturbance downtown, according to authorities.

Lindsay Lague, a spokesperson for the Providence Police Department, tells 12 News officers were out patrolling around 2 a.m. when they spotted a group of people creating a disturbance on Washington Street.

When the officer approached, several people in the group “responded to police in a combative, aggressive manner,” according to Lague.

Despite the “chaotic nature” of the disturbance, Lague said the officers arrested seven people on various charges including disorderly conduct, obstruction of justice, resisting arrest and simple assault.

The circumstances surrounding the disturbance are unknown at this time.
