From the Strib:

Police forced to rein in Dinkytown block party


Hundreds of students became unruly in Dinkytown late Saturday with Minneapolis Police in riot gear trying to break up a block party turned bad.

Police used pepper spray and smoke grenades to disperse the students on 7th Street and between 14th and 13th Avenues SE after a bonfire was lit in the street.

Mike Stahl, a student from nearby Augsburg College, said he was 15 feet from a smoke grenade that went off. "I couldn't breathe," Stahl said. "I understand why the cops are here because I have never seen anything like this."
