Peter Tartaglia, deputy commissioner of Westchester County Parks, talks about Monday's incident at Playland.
The dispute broke out at about 2:30 p.m. near the park's entrance between members of the Muslim American Society of New York, according to Peter Tartaglia, deputy commissioner of Westchester County Parks. Fighting began when they were told they would be denied access to certain rides if they wore religious garb, Tartaglia said.
Two seasonal officers were injured while joining Westchester County Police who were trying to break up the scuffle, he said.
At least 60 police vehicles from eight surrounding departments quickly arrived at the park and park visitors say they thought that as many as 20 or more people were taken away from the park by police.
The park and its rides remained open Tuesday, but new visitors were not being allowed into the park. Tartaglia said no one inside was asked to leave the park.
Tartaglia said the rules and regulations of the park were made clear before the group arrived, blaming group organizers for not conveying the message.
"Part of our rules and regulations, which we painstakingly told them over and over again, is that certain rides you can not wear any sort of headgear," said Tartaglia.
The 15 arrested are charged with misdemeanors, Tartaglia said, but other charges are possible. Those arrested were taken to Westchester County Police offices in Hawthorne and Ossining.

Peter Tartaglia, a spokesman for the Westchester County Parks Department, said the SuperFlight shut down after a sensor inaccurately indicated that cars were too close to each other.
Such sensor failures happen "from time to time" on the ride, Tartaglia said.Usually, they can be reset quickly and the ride restarted.
In this instance, park employees had trouble locating the faulty sensor and after about 20 minutes of trying to solve the problem decided to call the Fire Department for assistance, Tartaglia said.The ride, he added, has dozens of sensors placed at various spots.
"The first and foremost concern was to get the people off the ride, and that is what we did," Tartaglia said.

"The incident was very quickly escalating," Peter Tartaglia, deputy commissioner of the Westchester County Parks Department, tells the Times, "and the police had no choice to interfere, or it could have turned into a riot.

Peter Tartaglia, deputy commissioner of the County Parks Department, said that two people were charged with assault and that 13 were charged with disorderly conduct. All had been released by Tuesday night.
Mr. Tartaglia said the Muslim American Society of New York, which organized the outing, had been warned of the headwear rule, which he said was a safety precaution to ensure that items like caps and head scarves did not get entangled in mechanical parts. On Playland's Web site, he noted, rides that allow what the park calls headgear are clearly indicated with the letter H.
"This is all about safety, not about religion," he said.
Mr. Tartaglia recalled an April 2010 episode in Sydney, Australia, in which a 26-year-old mother wearing a hijab was strangled after her head scarf became tangled in the wheel axle of a go-kart.
Mr. Tartaglia said that nearly 6,000 people were at the amusement park at the time, and that police intervention had been necessary to ensure public safety. "The incident was very quickly escalating," he said, "and the police had no choice to interfere, or it could have turned into a riot."

"We do believe that (media) coverage of the accident had an adverse impact on our sales," said Peter Tartaglia, a spokesman for the Westchester Parks Department, referring to the June 29 death of Gabriela Garin.
Tartaglia stressed that the figures are not complete and likely will be revised upward.
Intense media coverage of the incident likely kept some visitors away, Tartaglia said.
"We had a couple of camp groups cancel outings, and they told us it was because of (the accident)," Tartaglia said yesterday.
Park attendance, though, remained relatively strong until August, when some some unfavorable weather, including a stretch of rainy days and some exceptionally hot and humid days, kept people out of the park, he added.
