Dover Police arrested two men, identified as Arnell Warren, 43, of Chestertown, Md., and Marshall Rivers, 28, of Dover, on riot charges after a large fight at the Dover Downs Hotel & Casino.
Dover Police arrested two men on riot and other charges after a fight at the Dover Downs Hotel and Casino June 2. Two other men also were arrested, but police gave no specifics.
Officers were called to the casino at 2:36 a.m., said police spokesman Capt. Tim Stump, after reports of a fight inside and that a man had been stabbed.
Police were unable to find a victim, and escorted between 50 and 100 people outside, Stump said, but another fight broke out. Officers quelled that disturbance after approximately 30 minutes, and remained on the scene for several hours afterward.
One man, Marshall Rivers, 28, of the 200 block of North Governors Blvd., was subdued with a Taser device after he allegedly grabbed a tire iron and tried to hit someone with it, Stump said. Rivers was charged with felony riot, aggravated menacing, possession of a deadly weapon during the commission of a felony, possession of a deadly weapon by a person prohibited, resisting arrest, disorderly conduct and loitering. He was jailed at the James T. Vaughn Correctional Center, Smyrna, in default of a $16,250 bond.
Arnell Warren, 43, of Chestertown, Md., was charged with felony riot, possession with intent to deliver cocaine, possession of marijuana, third-degree assault, resisting arrest, possession of drug paraphernalia, disorderly conduct and loitering. He was released after posting a $5,650 bond.
