Police use pepper spray as young Bellingham crowd riots

In a Saturday, Oct. 12, 2013 photo, police wearing riot gear stand by as hundreds of revelers gather in Bellingham, Wash., near the Western Washington University campus after police dispersed a noisy party that had drawn a few hundred people. Authorities said pepper spray was used by law enforcement officers to disperse hundreds of drunk, bottle-throwing college students who rioted Saturday along streets north of the Western Washington University campus in Bellingham.
