An attempt to shut down a party near the campus of Western Washington University in Bellingham on Saturday night led to students rioting in the street, requiring a SWAT team using tear gas and flash grenades to quell the uproar.
Around 500 college-aged people gathered in the street throwing beer bottles, ripping street signs out of the ground, dancing on cars and chanting obscenities at the police, after authorities attempted around 9 p.m. to shut down a party.
“There was drinking, it became disorderly and pretty much an out-and-out riot,” police Sgt. Mike Scanlon told the Associated Press.
It took authorities more than an hour to disperse the crowd, according to KCPQ-TV.
