According to the KJ, the detained man's name is Andrew Gifford.

The administration at Colby College has reportedly released a statement explaining that the altercation was between a group of non-students.  The statement also says that, as far as they know, no students were injured in the incident.

Staff have been on campus providing support for students, and counseling services will be available this morning for individual and group support


Police continue to investigate the incident and they are reportedly looking for a few other people involved.

LOOK: Best Beers From Every State

To find the best beer in each state and Washington D.C., Stacker analyzed January 2020 data from BeerAdvocate, a website that gathers user scores for beer in real-time. BeerAdvocate makes its determinations by compiling consumer ratings for all 50 states and Washington D.C. and applying a weighted rank to each. The weighted rank pulls the beer toward the list's average based on the number of ratings it has and aims to allow lesser-known beers to increase in rank. Only beers with at least 10 rankings to be considered; we took it a step further to only include beers with at least 100 user rankings in our gallery.
