FORT COLLINS, Colo. — A rowdy crowd of revelers threw bottles and ripped street signs from the ground after police broke up a house party Saturday night, the Fort Collins Police Department reported.
Police received a call about 10:50 p.m. regarding a large party in the 700 block of Blevins Court. When police arrived on scene, they saw 300 to 400 people were filling a cul de sac, officers said.
As officers approached, rocks and bottles were reportedly thrown at them. Officers called for backup, eventually dispersing the resistant crowd about 12:20 a.m., police said.
FCPD reported at least one person “charging” officers with a broken street sign, but a report from the Coloradoan said the sign-wielders did not actually appear to approach officers.
Some bystanders told the newspaper that police deployed tear gas and pepper spray on the crowd, but FCPD told FOX31 Denver that was “not believed” to be the case.
