After England’s 2-2 draw with Scotland, more than a dozen people were arrested.

More than a dozen people were arrested as police dealt with football fans during England’s Euro 2016 match against Scotland.

After the scoreless draw at Wembley on Friday night, fans flocked to Leicester Square in central London.

Fans, many of them were dressed in kilts and waving Scotland flags, lit red flares as they sang and shouted at the popular tourist attraction.

Others kicked footballs, hoisted bottles of booze aloft, and sang the Scottish national anthem while chanting “No Scotland, no party.”

As part of the total policing operation, 18 males were arrested, according to the Metropolitan Police.

Racial aggravation, drunk and disorderly behavior, and assault on a police officer were among the charges.

“As a result of the policing operation today in regard to the football, 18 persons have been arrested so far by officers,” a police spokesman told the PA news agency. All of the people detained were men.

“Arrests were mostly made in central London and at Wembley Stadium.

“Violence and disorder, drug possession, possession of an offensive weapon (knuckle duster), racial aggravation, drunk and disorderly, and assault on a police officer, who suffered minor injuries” were among the charges.
