LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Louisville Metro Police say they've arrested two people after they incited a riot at Shawnee Park.

It happened Sunday at 7 p.m., according to an arrest report.

Police say 21-year-old Terrell Gray was riding a motorcycle through Shawnee Park, driving through the grass, the basketball court and the food court. It was "very crowded," with many children at the park, according to the arrest report.

Police say they asked Gray to leave the area several times, and he responded by trying to ride the motorcycle through a crowded basketball court.

When police told Gray his motorcycle would have to be towed, he allegedly refused to get off. An officer then tried to arrest him, and he threw his bike down and "took a bladed stance," balling his fists, and pushing the officer a couple of times, according to the arrest report.

At that point, police say a crowd of 60-70 people gathered around Gray and the officer and began throwing things at the officer. A woman, 57-year-old Pamela Morris, allegedly got between Gray and the officer and threw a beer can at the officer. Police say she yelled "[EXPLETIVE] the police!" and caused others to be inflamed.

Gray allegedly yelled, "[EXPLETIVE] the police!" and made a crude sexual reference, refusing to allow officers to cuff him.

Both Gray and Morris were eventually taken into custody. Gray was charged with resisting arrest, menacing, fourth degree assault and inciting a riot. Morris was charged with first degree disorderly conduct, assault and inciting a riot.
