PHILADELPHIA — Philadelphia police say three teenagers were arrested for throwing bottles at officers as they dispersed a crowd of hundreds who were attending a cookout.

Police say the crowd became disorderly Sunday night at the Lonnie Young Recreation Center, where a similar large gathering was broken up last month.

WCAU-TV reports (http://bit.ly/2ugIdZa ) at least one officer was hit by a bottle but was not hurt. Police also say two vehicles were vandalized.

Police say the teens are charged with disorderly conduct. Their names were not released.
