‘Go Topless’ Jeep Weekend Ends with 70+ Arrests in Crystal Beach
The Annual Go Topless Weekend took place in Galveston at Crystal Beach, and by the way that folks are talking on Monday, it couldn't have gone much worse.
The beach party resulted in 70+ arrests according to ABC13.com and by 8:30 a.m. the following Monday, over 9000 names had signed a petition to end the annual event once and for all. The petition can be found at change.org.
The reports of arrests and violence are the real concern. Six people were hospitalized during the events on Saturday evening alone. Many of the fights have since shown up on youtube and social media much like the video below:
Feedback from attendees and residents of the community show concern for the way the Go Topless Jeep Weekend changes the landscape of the Bolivar Peninsula that results in the destruction of the beach and gives a bad image to the area.
