The future of "Teen Nights" at a Lee's Summit water park is under review after a fight broke out at a social event Monday.
Advertised as the "Bahama Bash Teen Nights," the June 11th event was a social event for teenagers ages 13-17 at the Summit Waves water park.
The two-hour event included games, giveaways, a DJ and concessions, according to the department website.
But the event began to spiral out of control when teens who had not paid for the event began jumping the fence to access the park, and others behaved in a "disrespectful" manner to park staff and police, the department said on its Facebook page.
After the event shut down 30 minutes early because of lightning and teens were sent to the parking lot, a fight broke out in the parking lot.
Lee's Summit Police spokesman Christopher Depue said the department sent officers to the park site Monday.
"We did not make any arrests and we had two off duty officers in uniform working the event and they asked for assistance from on duty officers dispersing the crowds and fight," he said.
Reports of shots fired or assaults on lifeguards that have circulated through the community are false, a Lee's Summit Parks and Recreation spokesperson said.
According to the city website, tickets were sold to Lee's Summit residents initially, but opened up to non-residents starting the day of the event.
The Lee's Summit Parks and Recreation Department said in a statement on its Facebook page that it was cooperating with a police investigation.
"LSPR is reviewing and determining the future of this event," said Joe Snook, administrator of Lee’s Summit Parks and Recreation, in an email to The Star. "A decision will be made before our next intended date for Teen Night, which is scheduled for June 25. We will keep everyone updated through social media once a decision has been made."
