More than 40 students from Albany colleges have been charged in the destructive riots that followed after the parade! Celebrating "Kegs and Eggs" parties, things got out of control when students began trashing property, damaging cars and brawling in the streets. Geez y'all...talk about the Fightin' Irish!
So far, five people face felony charges ranging from rioting and reckless endangerment to assaulting a police officer and criminal possession of a weapon. As of now, 37 students have been issued tickets for disorderly conduct and public intoxication.
One student arrested, Evan Sapio, is the son of Bob Sapio...the senior executive editor for the New York Daily News. The elder Sapio has reportedly been quoted as saying, "I'm gonna kill him" and really, what parent could blame him?
But, you ask, how have the police been able to catch all of those involved? Duh...from all of the youtube videos that have been popping up online this week...y'all gotta love the camera phone!
