    Police in Keene, New Hampshire, have arrested two more students in connection with the riots near the Oct. 18 pumpkin festival.

    JC Luangoudom, 19, of Hudson, New Hampshire, is charged with one count of disorderly conduct.

    Police say he stood on top of an overturned vehicle in the Madison Street Parking lot of Keene State College.

    Luangoudom was arrested on Nov. 1 and was released on a summons. He will be arraigned at the 8th Circuit Keene Court on Dec. 9.

    Also arrested was Brien Lynch, 19, of Southwick, Massachusetts. He is being charged with one count of criminal mischief.

    Police say he knocked down and kicked in a city street sign.

    He was arrested on Nov. 1 and released on a summons as well. He is also due in court on Dec. 9.

    Eighty-four people were arrested and more than 30 people were injured when police armed with riot gear clashed with raucous crowds Oct. 18 into the early morning hours of Oct. 19.

    Gov. Maggie Hassan expressed her outrage at the incident, and some students of the college have been working to show that the actions of a few do not define Keene State.

    Police continue to investigate the riots.
