Disturbance in Avondale

A party at a recreation center in Avondale spilled out into the parking lot around 9:30 PM Monday night, causing a major disturbance.  Three hundred to four hundred people starting fighting, throwing rocks, and blocking traffic.  Police from all over Cincinnati responded to Reading and Rockdale Road at the Walgreen's to disperse the crowd.  They came in full riot gear, but no pepperball guns were fired.  To break it up, they did throw a canister of mace into the crowd.  No one was seriously hurt.  No arrests were made, but police stayed in the area to enforce curfew laws and monitor the situation.
