Police had to shut down a “runaway” party involving up to 1,000 people on Saturday, April 23, in Eugene, Oregon, authorities said.
Some partygoers threw glass bottles and canned goods at officers, Eugene police said in a news release.
“Something like this is a complete embarrassment to the people who participated in that party,” Police Chief Chris Skinner said in a statement.
Officers were called to 16th Avenue at 11 a.m. for a large party that started around 10 a.m., police said.
They found people “blocking the entire roadway, spilling into travel lanes and spreading into neighboring properties” around a three-story apartment building, police said.
Partygoers included underage drinkers, college students and some parents, police said.
“We all understand the excitement that spring brings, but these irresponsible people, including parents and their college-age children, should be ashamed,” Skinner said in the statement.
It took police until 1 pm to finish breaking up the party, police told KATU. No arrests were made. The party delayed police responses to other calls, Skinner said.
