SPICER — Three women and one man are in custody, according to the Kandiyohi County Sheriff’s Office, after officers dispersed a crowd of at least 50 people and stopped multiple fights at 2:10 a.m. Saturday outside of Zorbaz on Lake Avenue in Spicer.

A deputy was struck by someone from within the crowd as the officers attempted to control the crowd and stop multiple fights that were occurring, according to a news release from the Sheriff’s Office.

Officers arriving at the scene learned that a firearm may be involved. The officers observed a very large group of people fighting as they arrived.

As officers subdued one fight, another erupted on the other end of the parking lot. Officers used a Taser on one individual.

The arrested parties include: a 28-year-old female from Renville; a 28 year-old female from Willmar; a 32-year-old male from Willmar, and a 28-year-old female from Willmar.


The Kandiyohi County Sheriff's Office was assisted by the Willmar Police Department, Spicer First Responders and the New London Ambulance.

The case remains under investigation, according to Corporal Tim Fischer.
