CLAYTON, Mo.  -- St. Louis County police say 63 people involved in a gathering of stunt motorcycle riders face citations, and 19 are dealing with arrests, after a weekend event in the region.

Police were out in full force for the Streetfighterz Ride of the Century 2012. A similar event in 2011 prompted numerous complaints about dangerous driving such as motorcycles zooming around cars and driving into traffic. Two motorcyclists were killed in 2011 and another lost a leg.

This year, county police say there were no fatal wrecks and only one involving a vehicle. Most of the citations and arrests were for traffic violations, though two people were arrested for drugs. Three guns were also seized.

St. Louis city police did not release any details related to the weekend.
