The Penobscot County Sheriff's Department said Monday that the two men were arrested late Friday night after staff at the Morgan Hill Event Center called police to report a fight.

Some people reportedly were using beer bottles as weapons and responding officers saw at least 20 people outside fighting and multiple broken bottles near the facility's entrance.
