Washington College Students Riot After Police Break Up a House Party at 9pm

Western Washington University students and other college-aged kids were trying to party on Sunday night when the fun police showed up and told them to knock it off. Oh, it was the actual police? No wonder the kids were so annoyed. From King5:

Many of the revelers moved to nearby Laurel Park, where they were joined by even more people, Scanlon said, calling it a “large, intoxicated, disorderly crowd.”

The situation “finally boiled over,” he said. “They began hurling projectiles at police.”

It took about 45 minutes for police to break up the crowd of nearly 500 kids who had gathered. Pepper spray and what looks like a SWAT vehicle were involved.
