"riot" erupted outside a birthday party in the Center Point area

Fairfield police arrested five people on fighting and disorderly conduct charges at a skating rink, according to Police Chief Pat Mardis.
Police were called to investigate a report of gunfire in the area, but no one was injured, Mardis said. Saturday-night fights landed six people in Jefferson County jails. Also on Saturday, a "riot" erupted outside a birthday party in the Center Point area, according to Sgt. Randy Christian of the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office.
Teenagers began to gather outside a banquet hall in the 2300 block of First Street Northeast that was filled to capacity when a 14-year-old girl got into a fight, Christian said, "and riot conditions followed."
A gun was fired, but no one was hit.
Birmingham police, Center Point firefighters and deputies working other areas of the county responded to the scene.
Deputies were "vastly outnumbered," Christian said.
"I am sure at some point the deputies thought this is how Custer must have felt," Christian said. Some in the crowd threw things at deputies and at one point nearly 40 of the approximately 450 people there were involved in multiple fights, Christian said. The 14-year-old was the only one arrested, Christian said, because she started the fight that sparked the riot.
There were no known serious injuries, Christian said, but one person claimed to have been assaulted by approximately 14 males.
In Fairfield, one person arrested had a gun, Mardis said. An adult was also arrested for fighting a teenage girl, he said.
