HUBER HEIGHTS – A Huber Heights Police Officer issued a “signal 99/officer needs assistance” after breaking up a fight at The Heights Racquetball & Fitness Club in the early morning hours of Saturday.

Officers from Butler Township, Riverside, Englewood, Dayton, and the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office responed to the scene and assisted in breaking up the crowd.

While breaking up the fight at the club located at 5239 Taylorsville Road a female was being arrested and an adult male attempted to intervene in the arrest and refused police orders to disperse. He was also arrested for disorderly conduct.

A crowd of “dozens of non-compliant people advanced on the officers and refused to disperse,” according to a media release by the Huber Heights Police Department.

At that point, the officers issued a Signal 99 to other area law enforcement due to the large number of people and a history of weapons violations at the business.

Huber Heights Police have charged three adults with disorderly conduct and jailed one of them on that charge. No injuries were reported and order was restored within about 30 minutes.
