Fort Collins investigation results in Wellington man being charged with inciting a riot

Fort Collins police have concluded the investigation into the April 27 parties in the Summerhill neighborhood that deteriorated into riotous conditions.

The parties were shut down after police were called to the neighborhood when residents complained about large crowds gathered in the street. Police dispersed the partygoers who cooperated until the music was shut off. The crowd became unruly and aggressive, breaking bottles, climbing on streetlight poles, cars, and trees, and throwing bottles at police.

Although the vast majority of party-goers did not actively cause problems, they did contribute by failing to disperse when ordered. A total of 15 people involved in the disturbance have been identified and charged with the following:
