During the annual Christmas in July celebration in Put-in-Bay last weekend, it wasn't all "merry and bright" after a brawl allegedly broke out on the island.

Three people were arrested at the Miller Boat area, which is near the ferry boat line, according to Chief John Gangway of the Catawaba Island Township Police Department.

Out of the three arrests, one person was from Bedford and two others were from Detroit.

Police said they had extra staffing for the event to control traffic because of the number of people visiting from out of town.

One attendee captured officers tackling one person to the ground on video.
