Dinkytown Block Party Turned Riot

A Dinkytown block party got out of hand Saturday night, forcing police to rein in the riot according to the Star Tribune.
Six people were arrested as hundreds of unruly students started fires and tried to tip over cars.
Police used pepper spray and smoke grenades to disperse students on 7th Street between 13th and 14th Avenues SE in Dinkytown.
The party was part of the campus's Spring Jam activities.
