A loud party raging into early Sunday morning on Long Island led to several arrests after a struggle with police.

According to detectives, Fifth Precinct officers responded to a loud party in Elmont at 1:25 a.m.

Upon arrival, police say 17-year-old Michael Thomas and 19-year-old Samuel Thomas were informed that they were in violation of the Nassau County Noise Ordinance and that the party also involved underage drinking.

At that time, prosecutors say both suspects forcefully prevented officers from gaining access by pushing and slamming the front door on the officers.

After gaining entry, the officers attempted to place both men under arrest, but they continued to resist and struggled with the officers.

As a result, one officer was cut on the finger and was treated at a nearby hospital.

Two other officers suffered injuries to their backs and were treated at the scene.

Both men are charged with two counts of assault, obstruction of governmental administration and resisting arrest.
