Thousands of Ohio Students Throw Mass Car Rollover Party and No Arrests
Another party with the participation of thousands of students of The Ohio State University turned into total destruction. The police counted seven overturned cars and are now investigating the identity of the students involved in the damage to property.
“Last night’s property destruction and willful disregard for safety just off campus is unacceptable. Ohio State will work with local law enforcement to identify and hold responsible any students who took part,” Ben Johnson, OSU Communications said. “In a normal year, such behavior is appalling and dangerous. In a pandemic, the risk is even higher. Students should not be gathering in large groups and should be wearing masks and maintaining physical distance.”
According to police reports, the so-called Chitt Fest on Chittenden Avenue led over 30 police patrols to disperse hundreds of crowds. However, not a single arrest was made.
Ohio State University President Kristina M. Johnson criticized the students' behavior and urged them to cooperate with the police.
I am counting on everyone to pull together so we can safely finish out this challenging year - and every year - #TogetherAsBuckeyes.— Kristina M. Johnson (@PresKMJohnson) April 18, 2021
