St. Patrick’s Day party turns violent in London, Ont.The Mayor of London, Ont. has pledged to punish rowdy partiers who caused an estimated $100,000 worth of damage when a party turned violent on St. Patrick’s Day.
“You will pay in one way, shape or form,” Mayor Joe Fontana said at a Sunday news conference. His comments were directed at revellers who ignited cars, overturned vehicles and pelted police with glass bottles during the out-of-control party.
Police said the chaos broke out just before 10 p.m. Saturday on Fleming Drive in the city’s east end, an area heavily populated by students and blocks away from Fanshawe College.
Crowds of revellers ignited a fire and stoked it with random objects as police attempted to break up the mob, of an estimated 1,000 people. Bricks, tire rims and wooden planks were hurled at officers.
