WAKEFIELD, R.I. (WLNE) —  Two men who were arrested earlier this month after the brawls on Block Island are expected in court Wednesday.

Both 37-year-old Abdou Njie, of Pawtucket, and 32-year-old Trent Manning, of Providence are scheduled to appear in Washington County District Court.

The two are both facing disorderly conduct charges stemming from the incidents on Aug. 8.

Eight total people were arrested after fights broke out on the Block Island Ferry and at Ballard’s Beach Resort.

Block Island’s Town Council elected to revoke Ballard’s liquor license in a meeting Monday night. The resort has since appealed the decision.
