A public safety officer, who had been working to disperse the group for soliciting money from customers, was the one who flagged down police, a spokeswoman for the zoo said.

The children were allegedly selling water bottles to raise money for a local football team, according to FOX 29. Police sources told the station that they doubted that the players were selling for the team, and they did not have a permit.

The same group has stirred trouble in the past, according to a zoo spokeswomman. The spokesman said the group threw rocks and harassed a female public safety officer.

She also noted that it’s standard practice to ask anyone engaged in commercial or aggressive behavior to leave.

A teenager and an adult were cited for disorderly conduct.

The police have since launched an internal investigation following complaints from the community to determine whether the officers’ actions were appropriate.
