Cincy police in riot gear break up unruly party

CINCINNATI (AP) — Nearly two dozen police officers in riot gear dispersed an off-campus party involving University of Cincinnati students.

Campus police responded to a call of nearly 500 unruly students close to campus shortly after midnight Sunday.

WCPO-TV reports that once on scene, some of the partiers pelted the university's cruisers with bottles, breaking one mirror on one of the cars.

That's when campus police called Cincinnati police.

Twenty officers wearing riot gear arrived to the scene and broke up the crowd without further incident. No one was arrested.

Meanwhile in Columbus, police responded to a fight and several trash fires at an annual campus party that attracts thousands.

WSYX reports that an officer had to separate two people who were fighting and took one man into custody.
