Three people were arrested and six others were injured on Saturday after a riot ensued outside of the Park Central New York hotel where auditions for the 13th season of Tyra Banks’ hit reality show America’s Next Top Model were being held.

Women no taller than 5-foot-7 turned out in droves for a chance to be a contestant on the special season of Top Model dedicated to short ladies.
