Seven fans were arrested in connection with football-related disorder during Ross County’s Scottish Cup quarter-final match on Saturday.
More than 70 seats were broken in the Global Energy stadium’s North stand, occupied by Dundee United fans who had travelled north to see their team take on the Dingwall club.
A report has been submitted to the Procurator Fiscal and police said there was the potential for further arrests.
It is understood some supporters tore down signs inside the stadium and threw streamers and toilet rolls onto the pitch, with some spectators entering the field of play at one stage.
On Friday, police issued warnings to fans about bringing potentially dangerous smoke bombs and flares to the match, which the Staggies lost 3-2.
This has become an increasingly common phenomenon, with a string of high-profile incidents at grounds across the country.
These included flares being thrown onto Stranraer’s Stair Park during a Scottish Cup match against Celtic.
And in February last year, a man was charged after two smoke bombs were flung onto the pitch before a Highland derby in Inverness.
Yesterday, Ross County’s stadium manager David O’Connor, a former police superintendent, said he could not remember the last time seven supporters were arrested at a home Ross County game.
He added: “It’s disappointing and we have been left with more than 70 broken seats in the North stand. If that is the behaviour at football matches, the game and clubs need to look closely at it to stop it.
“We had police there to assist the stewards because we did have information that there would be trouble. It was the right decision having police there because the stewards were pretty stretched.
“It’s just something we are not used to in the north of Scotland and we will dust ourselves down and repair the damage that has been done.”
Match commander and superintendent Colin Gough said: “It is disappointing that a small minority of fans were involved within disorder in the ground.
“Disruptive behaviour will not be tolerated in any form. Inquiries are continuing and there is the potential for further arrests.”
