MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Six people have been arrested after an alleged water attack on drivers and passengers of a pedal pub in Minneapolis.

KSTP-TV reports there were no injuries in the Saturday evening attack, but six people were arrested on charges ranging from disorderly conduct to assault to terrorist threats.

PedalPub Twin Cities manager Lisa Staplin tells The Associated Press that law enforcement and owners were put on alert Saturday after a posting on a Facebook page suggested that people gather on bicycles then attack the pubs. At about 6:30 p.m. Saturday, she says, two PedalPub groups were attacked.

In one case, a “pilot” got sprayed with water directly in the face.

Staplin says she’s glad there were no injuries.

Minneapolis police did not immediately return messages left by the AP.
