COLORADO: Frats Riot After Police Try To Break Up Party Over COVID Concerns, Attack Cop Cars

504

Chaos erupted in Boulder’s University Hill neighborhood Saturday night after a large party got out of control.

According to the Boulder Police Department, it’s estimated 500-800 people gathered at the height of the riot.

“This is an unlawful assembly. Due to riot conditions, you’re ordered to leave the area immediately,” a SWAT officer was heard announcing over an intercom at one point in the night.

A CU Boulder student, who did not want to be identified, told Denver7 what happened Saturday night was a result of frustration over COVID-19 restrictions.

“This is a culmination of kindred spirits that have come together to put on something beautiful: a rebellion, revolution,” the student said. “They feel like they’ve had their freedoms taken away from them by the school, by the county. This was a revolt.”

Several cars were damaged, including one the mob tipped over, along with SWAT and Boulder Fire trucks. At least three SWAT officers were also injured, but they’re doing OK now.
