A large disturbance on the University of Dayton campus ended in the arrest of a non-student for underage drinking and public intoxication, according to a university spokeswoman.
No injuries were reported.
University of Dayton Police along with Dayton Police calmed a large disturbance involving more than one thousand students and other people in the 400 block of Kiefaber Street.
University of Dayton Police were dispatched sometime between 4 a.m. and 4:30 a.m. in response to a false fire alarm, said Teri Rizvi, a university spokeswoman.
Just before 5 a.m. police from around the Miami Valley region responded to the student housing area equipped with riot gear.
According to our crews on the scene, students were jumping on top of cars, throwing glass beer bottles into the street and yelling at police officers. Kiefaber Street is littered with broken glass, beer cans and trash.
Many cars, including police cruisers, were damaged in the disturbance.
University of Dayton President Daniel Curran went to the campus after receiving reports related to the disturbance.
He (Curran) was called by a vice president in charge of public safety and went over there to get a sense of what was going on, Rizvi said.
Kids will be kids, what would growing up be without occasional mass hysteria and rioting.
