WEST ALLIS, Wis. (AP) – Wisconsin State Fair Park officials are instituting some changes following at least two dozen arrests and injuries to park police officers during opening day of the fair.

State Fair Park CEO Rick Frenette says about 24 people were arrested on the grounds Thursday during disturbances on the midway. Frenette says seven park police officers were injured, including two who were taken to the hospital.

Frenette says there will be an increased police presence following disturbances at the fair and surrounding neighborhood. And, he says all those under 18 attending the fair will have to be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian after 5 p.m.

Milwaukee and West Allis police are investigating reports of a crowd of young people injuring at least four people as they left the fair.
