What do you get when you have thousands of southern California bros with access to a bunch of booze? A parade! No, just kidding. You get a bunch of drunk idiots fighting, and throwing stuff at police. Why not? It’s a party, brah! Via Mercury News:

About 100 people were arrested and at least 44 people were taken to the hospital during a weekend college party in Southern California that devolved into an out-of-control street brawl, authorities said.

The violence broke out in the densely populated beachside community of Isla Vista around 9:30 p.m. Saturday during the annual spring break party known as Deltopia, the Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Office said.

Okay, it sounds a bit overblown. Calm down, Police. It’s not like people were stabbing each other.

Earlier in the day, authorities also responded to reports of a stabbing and found several individuals carrying weapons, she said. Aside from those who were treated after the brawl broke out, nearly every person who was hospitalized on Saturday had consumed excess alcohol, Hoover added.

Oh. Well, whenever stabbing starts happening is when it’s a good time to catch an Uber.
