SIKESTON, MO (KFVS) - An out of control crowd leads to 13 arrests and a rock thrown through the back window of a Department of Public Safety patrol car in Sikeston.

The crowd around the car then ran off in several directions. Numerous officers then flooded the area in an effort to control the unruly crowds. In the end, police arrested 13 people including eight juveniles.

  • 8 – Juveniles for curfew and/or underage drinking
  • 2 – Adults for minor in possession
  • 1 – Adult for minor in possession and a warrant arrest
