ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — Police say six people have been arrested on charges they were among hundreds of young partygoers who trashed the upstate New York vacation home of a former NFL player.

The arrests came after former New England Patriots and Los Angeles Raiders offensive lineman Brian Holloway said Thursday he signed papers authorizing the Rensselaer County sheriff to bring charges in the Labor Day weekend party.

Holloway says investigators have told him hundreds of people could be charged.

He says one of the arrested people had been taken into his family briefly years ago.

Holloway gained national attention by reposting pictures the teens had put on social media websites. He says he did it to get them to take responsibility for the damage to his Stephentown home but only four did.
