A total of eight people have been arrested and charged after a disturbance in downtown Springfield early Sunday morning.

Springfield Police noticed two men fighting as patrons left the ZAN club on South Patton Avenue.

Here is the news release from Springfield Police Department:

Springfield, Mo. – On Sunday, Aug. 27, at 1:23 am., officers with the Springfield Police Department patrolling downtown responded to a disturbance in the 300 block of S. Patton Avenue. 

As officers arrived, they encountered hundreds of patrons leaving ZAN, a local club, and observed two subjects, Floyd Humphrey III, 27, and Fradreico Walton, 27, in an argument. Humphrey displayed a firearm and was disarmed by officers. Both subjects were subsequently arrested.

As officers were diffusing the argument, people in the crowd began throwing glass bottles at them. Anthony Humphrey, 31 and Dylan Dixon, 19, were arrested after a brief struggle. 

Officers from surrounding departments responded to the scene to assist as additional fights broke out in the area. During the incident a suspect broke a window on a police vehicle and fled the scene.
