Campus Crossing "mega-party" ends poorly for CSU students

Several Colorado State University students face criminal charges after this weekend's massive party which drew thousands of students and several police squads. Criminal charges are very serious for college students and can have long lasting consequences including expulsion from school or a blight on post-school job applications. A qualified Colorado personal defense attorney is essential to making sure that a college student accused of a crime can move on with his or her life and not face lasting consequences for a youthful mistake.

Authorities charged several of this weekend's partygoers with serious offenses. Police quickly shut down what was billed as the "biggest pool party of the year" by descending upon the 13 building, 660-bedroom apartment complex which hosted the massive party. Organizers from Campus Crossing at Ram's Pointe say that they "regret" what happened and that they are working with authorities in the post party investigation.

The party appeared to be a huge success with a DJ and thousands of dancing students. Things quickly turned ugly however when 10 people ended up at Poudre Valley Hospitals for various conditions that ranged from cuts to severe intoxication. One woman even had a glass bottle broken in her face after a fight.

"The fact that 10 people went to the hospital is hugely telling," said interim Fort Collins police Chief Jerry Schiager.

Authorities cited several people including members of the CSU football team. The team's backup defensive lineman was cited for disorderly conduct, the starting middle linebacker was cited for third-degree assault, and two other students were arrested.

"At the end of the day, the students have to take responsibility for their decisions," CSU Dean of Students Jody Donovan said. "Sometimes, they have to learn things the hard way."
