DAYTON, Ohio (AP) - Administrators at the University of Dayton plan to meet this week to discuss an unruly weekend party in a student housing area that had to be quelled by riot-equipped police officers.
Media outlets report the pre-dawn St. Patrick's Day crowd of more than 1,000 people was climbing on cars, throwing bottles and yelling at police early Sunday morning.
WHIO-TV reports (http://bit.ly/ZD82Ny ) 11 vehicles were damaged, including a police cruiser after the disturbance.
University officials sent an email to students on Sunday banning large, non-university sponsored events in an effort to keep holiday celebrations on campus safe.
A school spokeswoman says about 11,000 students are enrolled at the University of Dayton, and more than 7,000 live on campus.
