The police arrested 13 people on Sunday night for drunkenness and aggravated assault at a car group gathering at Rudskogen in Østfold.

The car group on Saturday night was more than just automotive. Police in Østfold arrested 13 people, and only managed to take the worst ones.

– there has been a lot of drinking and that is what caused problems, said operations leader Ingar Signebøen in Eastern Police District to NRK news.

Sunday morning Signebøen announced that they have arrested or brought in 13 people, both for sheer intoxication and some for rough unprovoked violence.

– We just arrested three people who have assulted at least five people, causing a broken jaw and knocked out teeth, said the Operations Officer Sunday morning.

He believes good weather has enhanced the level of attendance. The car group gathered around 40,000 people at the three day event.
The event has been going on since Thursday, and there has been no serious incidents until the last night.
