    Two men were arrested Sunday night in Rutland after police from three agencies were called to disperse a crowd that gathered over a dispute on School Street.

    More than 40 people were reportedly involved in a series of heated verbal and physical confrontations in the city’s southwest neighborhood, Rutland Police Sgt. John Sly said.

    The size of the gathering was so great that city police called for backup from Vermont State Police and the Rutland County Sherriff’s Department as well as another shift of officers coming on duty in the city.

    Police also arrested two participants — 19-year-old Tiler Cormia and Nicholas Prior, 20, both of Rutland — on charges of disorderly conduct.
