The release states Taylor and Pemberton are not Pennsylvania residents and are being held at Lackawanna County Prison.

22/22 News reached out to Montage Mountain regarding the incident.

Thank you for reaching out. Last night’s incident occurred after our event ended and away from the waterpark in the parking lot as guests were leaving. We’ve had our Adult Swim for many years now, in fact this is our 11th year. We have always made a strong effort to operate safely and successfully. Through the years we’ve worked closely with the Scranton Police Department, partnering with their officers onsite as well as our own security staff to ensure guest safety. It is never a good situation when two young individuals decide, for whatever reason, to engage each other in a parking lot and fight. For our part, everyone involved acted quickly and professionally to control the situation and prevent escalation. Montage Mountain Resorts thanks the SPD, assisting first responders, and our own staff for their hard work, and we acknowledge all of our Adult Night guests who came to have a good time and refused to allow this isolated event to grow.

Tyler Crawford, Director of Resort Relations

Officials say this remains an active investigation.
