OCEAN CITY — Gov. Larry Hogan thanked state and local law enforcement agencies that helped Ocean City Police in response to what he called an "unruly disturbance" over the weekend.

The Maryland State Police activated several units, including its Mobile Field Force, as well as Maryland Transportation Authority Police and Maryland Natural Resources Police.

Hogan said as a result of the mobilization, police issued more than 3,500 citations, made nearly 2,500 traffic stops, over 350 cars were towed, and several hundred arrests were made.
