Hundreds of teenagers were caught up in a drunken brawl that spilled outside a nightclub in Athens, Ga. More than a dozen police officers broke up the fights and shut down the party at El Paisano on North Street Wednesday night. The Athens Banner-Herald reports that many of the teens were bloodied from fighting, including a 13-year old girl. They found cups of alcohol and a 16-year old boy holding a bottle of vodka.
Three teens were arrested, including a 17-year old boy with a bloody nose, who was carrying a bag of fake crack cocaine.
An off-duty Clark County sheriff’s deputy who was hired to provide security was apparently not in the club when police arrived. He showed up after police ordered everyone to go home.
