This is what a mindless mob looks like.
Meanwhile in Port Aransas, Texas, hundreds of youthful fools responded to cops breaking up a fist fight by chasing after them up the dunes en masse only to get peppersprayed down moments later.
The beach hijinks erupted Wednesday and were filmed by Jonathan Vela, who later posted the video on Facebook.
“There was this big party there. It was 10 minutes before the curfew that Port A has so I thought I’d sit and wait. This is what happened. The video doesn’t do justice. It was crazy!!” he wrote in the comments.
A seemingly typical fight between two broke out and police responded by attempting to break it up, but the dudes resisted and ran off. The cops chased after them and everyone else chased after the cops.
The police, understandably concerned about the wild crowd, deployed pepperspray, which ended up causing another fight. Eventually the main troublemakers were cuffed and the frenzy was quelled.
Here are a couple of the tough guys.
If it looks like people were planning on getting in trouble, it may not be too far from the truth.
The Port Aransas Police told the Corpus Christi Caller-Times that spring breakers often call in advance to ask what the fine for public intoxication is and come prepared with the exact amount of $378.
“We have people who come to the beach for spring break who call in advance and ask ‘What’s the fine for (public intoxication)?'” Port Aransas Police Chief Scott Burroughs said. “When we book them in jail, quite often they will have $378 in their pocket and they ask ‘Can I bond out?'”
