Six arrested after rowdy crowds converge downtown


Police arrested six people after hundreds of young people flocked to downtown Tuesday night and caused a chaotic scene as thousands gathered for St. Patrick's Day celebrations. 

An estimated 300 people — mostly youth — converged on downtown and some fights broke out on the street. The main disturbances were along Nicollet Mall, near 3rd & Marquette and 8th & Hennepin, according to the Minneapolis Police Department.

Two people involved in fights were treated for minor injuries.
