ALBANY, N.Y-- The number of Albany college students charged after weekend "kegs and eggs" parties turned riotous has topped 40 and city officials are vowing to use revelers' cellphone videos of the mayhem in the investigation, MyFoxBoston reports.
Five college students were charged with felonies Saturday after early morning parties held before Albany's St. Patrick Day parade spilled into a street where many students live. Cellphone videos posted online show hundreds of young people filling the street and partying on porches. Some are shown fighting, jumping on cars, smashing vehicle windows, throwing debris and tossing a television off a second-floor balcony.
Two police officers were slightly injured breaking up the melee.
Authorities say about three dozen others have been issued appearance tickets, with 14 arraigned Monday on charges ranging from disorderly conduct to carrying alcohol in public.
