WEST ALLIS, Wis. (AP) -- West Allis police are releasing new details about some arrests on the opening night of the Wisconsin State Fair, but say none of those incidents possessed elements that would prompt their prosecution as hate crimes.
The police department issued a statement Tuesday with new information about a handful of the more than two dozen arrests made last week.
Witnesses reported the opening night attacks seemed to be racially motivated with young African Americans beating up white fair goers, but police say as of now there isn't enough evidence to support those claims.
The State Fair has since stepped up security with the help of local and state officers. There have been no reports of similar widespread incidents since opening night.
