CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - Thousands of people enjoyed the Fourth of July celebration in uptown Charlotte with very problems from troublemakers Monday night.
As of 1 a.m. Tuesday, the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department reported that only four adults were arrested compared to 21 adult arrests in 2010.
The arrests were for trespassing, drug possession, illegal display of fireworks, and disorderly conduct.
The CMPD said 11 juveniles were found in violation of the city's curfew ordinance.
The lack of criminal activity Monday night was in sharp contrast to what some describe as a melee which occurred in center city during the Memorial Day weekend.
During that incident, shots were fired and two men were struck by bullets during a large crowd fight outside the transit center. One of the men who was shot, later died from his injuries.
