Another Newark rager broken up, four UD students charged

A second party in Newark within the week was broken up by Newark Police early yesterday evening, with six arrests made for violating a city ordinance limiting the size of public gatherings.

Police were called to Choate Street at about 5:30 pm yesterday for reports of a “loud party.”  When police arrived on the scene they encountered a group of about 15 people in the front and side yard of the property enjoying the nice spring weather.


Some of the revelers fled when police approached, others were detained at the scene.

The University of Delaware confirmed today that four of the six charged with violating the Newark ordinance prohibiting gatherings of more than ten people were students. All individuals received summonses at the scene and were released to appear in court at a later date.


The four UD students will also have their moment with the University’s Office of Student Conduct.

Last week Newark Police broke up a similar-sized gathering, arresting 12 individuals, 9 of whom were UD students.
