2 arrested, car flipped after party at Pa. college

WEST CHESTER, Pa. (AP) — Police in suburban Philadelphia say more arrests are possible after a melee at a party near West Chester University in which a car was flipped over as several hundred students poured through the streets.

Officials say there were an estimated 400 or 500 students at the street party Saturday afternoon when things began to get out of hand. The students had paid a $15 cover charge to get in.

Police responded and two people were arrested. As people poured through the streets, investigators say a group flipped over a car.

Police Chief Scott Bohn says police had learned of the party beforehand and warned the organizers to cancel it. He says police are reviewing video of the incident and interviewing witnesses as they decide whether more charges are warranted.
