The incident occurred after a cancelled student dance, which was scheduled for Saturday but was cancelled due to a staff member calling off work.

Some of the students refused to return to their dorms by the 11 p.m. curfew that night, and early Sunday morning, students began setting off fire alarms.

Ackerman was called to the assistant discipline officer's office but refused and instead went to Alcott Hall, where she began smashing glass items.

When center staff tried to stop her, she began biting, punching and kicking them. Other students "started joining in."

At that point, state police were summoned.

When state police arrived, they found large groups of students congregated in the main dormitory area.

Shortly afterward, two state troopers were directed by staff to a student "who may have been in possession of a weapon" and who was walking on the grounds. When the police detained the student, the crowd became hostile, including Gardner, who was yelling and screaming and causing a disturbance.

As troopers tried to stop Gardner from approaching, she struck a trooper in the head and resisted arrest.

During the incident, Rivera also allegedly assaulted a student.

Ackerman, Gardner and Rivera were sent to the Wyoming County jail in lieu of bail, police said.

What is the (n) before their names in the article?

Anyway, what nice young ladies. Is this a finishing school?

I have no idea what the n is for. We are in the middle of a breakdown of social structure tilting toward the end.
