Lumberton Police Chief Danny Sullins says eight Buna residents were jailed following a weekend disturbance there. Sullins said it happened at about 1:30 Sunday morning at the Waffle House, located on U.S. Highway 96 in Lumberton.

According to Chief Sullins, officers tried to quell the situation, but those involved refused to calm down and that resulted in the arrests being made.

Sullins said each person was charged with Public Intoxication. However, their names were not immediately available.

It is believed that all involved apparently got into an argument or disagreement at a night spot or bar in Beaumont and the dispute continued as they stopped for breakfast in Lumberton.
