A different video shows a crowd gathering and police arresting more people:

According to CBS 13, four teens — ages 19, 19, 18, and 19 — were arrested and charges:

From the article:

On June 12, shortly before 8:30 p.m., officers on foot patrol near 12th Street and The Boardwalk observed a large group vaping. Officers approached the group and told them the local ordinance that prohibited smoking and vaping outside of the designated areas. As the group, walked away, officers noticed the same person continuing to vape.

Officers approached the group again to address the violation. According to officials, the male refused to provide identification and became disorderly. He was later identified as Anderson.

Officers said that as they attempted to place Anderson under arrest for failure to provide ID, he began to resist. He was charged with disorderly conduct, resistance and interference with arrest, second-degree assault and failure to provide proof of identity. He was seen by a Maryland District Court Commissioner and was released.
