Video: 3 officers injured at Ohio St. street party

By PoliceOne Staff

COLUMBUS, Ohio - A street party at Ohio State University got out of control Saturday, forcing officers to deploy pepper spray to disperse partiers who were blocking a street near campus.

According to WTAM.com, the crowd at the "Woodfest" party grew to 4,000, at which point police moved in. Several homemade videos captured the fracas, in which three officers were injured - fortunately, all minor. Sgt. Rich Weiner told WTAM that one officer was hit in the head by a full can of beer.

The Lantern reports three men were charged with assault on a police officer; check out mugshot photos here.
