More arrests in Pumpkin Festival riots; meeting Tuesday to discuss future

KEENE - The arrests keep on coming in Keene. Police made two more Monday in connection with October's riots that left dozens injured.

Connor Wishartis charged with disorderly conduct for allegedly climbing up a light post on the Keene State College campus.
And a student there, Jeremy Schneider, facing the same charges. He's accused of throwing a beer can into the crowd.

So far there have been a total of 100 arrests.

Meanwhile city officials are holding a public meeting tomorrow on those riots and the fate of the pumpkin festival. Keene State College is hosting the meeting.

Keene State President Ann Huot said, "I hope to hear from the residents of Keene, and I hope they come with some constructive ideas on how we go forward together. Then we will be giving that information to the College City Committee which is an important vehicle to collectively working out our challenges and issues."

Tuesday's meeting is at 6:30 p.m. at the Student Center on the Keene State College campus.
