Johnson City police officers were assisted by at least four other agencies after dozens of people gathered in a village neighborhood.

Police chief Brent Dodge said officers had been called to 149 Hudson Street around 9:15 p.m. last Thursday to assist the village code enforcement department.

Dodge said code enforcement was at an apartment house to investigate a potential fire hazard created by an electrical issue.

The police chief said an "angry mob" showed up after they learned of the situation involving someone who lived in the building. He said he believed the resident is a member of the Binghamton-based group "PLOT" - "Progressive Leaders of Tomorrow."

Dodge said police officers encountered about 30 "extremely hostile people" on Hudson Street. He said units from Binghamton police, Vestal police, the Broome County Sheriff's Office and New York State Police were sent to the scene to help restore order.

The village police chief said three people were arrested after officers were pushed and threatened. He said one officer was thrown to the ground. Police used pepper spray during the incident. No injuries were reported.

Dodge said three people were arrested. He said charges included obstructing governmental administration, harassment, disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.
