“Officers had to intervene for an animated crowd who came out of a show,” said Véronique Dubuc, a spokesperson for Montreal police.
“People were blocking the streets and refused to move and collaborate with police.”
Several fires were ignited on the streets, forcing the Montreal fire department to also intervene.
It took officers about an hour to take control of the situation.
Dubuc says there were no damages to nearby property.
