15 cited after Fort Collins parties turn into riot

FORT COLLINS, Colo. (AP) - Fort Collins police say 15 people, including eight Colorado State University students, have been cited following parties in April that deteriorated into a riot-like disturbance, with officers using tear gas to disperse crowds.

Police said Wednesday that two non-students face felony charges of inciting a riot. The Coloradoan reports one of the two is a seasonal CSU employee whose duties involve housekeeping, but he wasn't working at CSU when the parties happened April 27.

Two other people face misdemeanor charges of engaging in a riot.

One person was cited with a petty offense of disorderly conduct.

Police say eight people who hosted some of the parties received municipal citations for nuisance gatherings.

Two others were cited for unreasonable noise.
