9 arrests in wild Staten Island incident, as unruly crowd overruns cops, police say

Crowd STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. — Firefighters came to the rescue of two police officers outnumbered in Mariners Harbor today, in a scene so chaotic that New York’s Bravest employed a truck-mounted deluge gun — a water cannon — to fend off the marauding group of teens.
The scene unfolded at about 3:30 p.m. in front of 83 Harbor Rd., where a large group of teenagers had amassed to confront a teenage girl who lives in the residence.
By the time it was over, two officers were sent to Richmond University Medical Center, West Brighton, for treatment, and nine teens ended up under arrest, said Inspector John Denesopolis, the 120th Precinct’s commanding officer. Police also recovered a starter pistol, he said.
The officers were OK, but “banged up,” Denesopolis said.
