A brawl among several groups of teen girls at Jaycee Park Monday evening ended with four arrests.

According to police reports, a caller notified authorities a group of seven to eight girls at the location near 10th Avenue and Clermont Street were fighting.

A mother called back minutes later to say her 14-year-old daughter had been punched in the face. Officers arrived to find the park empty, but did locate a number of girls at a nearby gas station, who eventually admitted roles in the altercation.

Investigation showed the confrontation was between a group of girls from the Wausau area and a group from Antigo all between the ages of 14-18.

After everything was sorted out, three 18-year-old girls and one 17-year-old were arrested, all were from the Wausau area. Charges include disorderly conduct and resisting/obstructing an officer.

The 14-year-old victim in the matter did require medical attention at Aspirus Langlade Hospital.

Alcohol was the cause of problems for a number of area people over the weekend.

Troubles began at 1:42 a.m. Saturday when a County Road M woman in the Town of Wolf River called authorities to tell them her daughter’s friend was intoxicated and was trying to leave the residence with her child.

Deputies arrived to find the 32-year-old woman had been arguing with a 29-year-old male companion and had allegedly taken several swings at him. A breathalyzer exam revealed a blood alcohol level of .284. She was arrested for disorderly conduct.

Less than an hour later at 2:35 a.m., a man was arrested for a first offense operating while intoxicated on Fifth Avenue near Deleglise Street after making an improper left turn. A preliminary breath test at the scene showed a blood alcohol level of .20, well above the legal limit for intoxication.

In other unrelated incidents, a City of Antigo police officer spotted a man having a hard time walking down the sidewalk near Seventh Avenue and Edison Street at 6:30 p.m. Saturday.

Upon investigation, the officer immediately noted the smell of intoxicants, and the 49-year-old man was found to be on a no-drink
