Albany’s Kegs and Eggs Rioters Get Jail Time
Last month we shared with you the video from the riots that accompanied the annual Kegs and Eggs St. Patrick's Day festivities in Albany. This week, the Times Union reported that two of the rioters plead guilty to their part in the rioting and will serve jail time.
Two men will spend time in jail after pleading guilty Thursday to damaging cars at last month's "kegs and eggs" melee.
The pair entered guilty pleas to misdemeanor charges in City Court. District Attorney David Soares decried the "lawlessness" that occurred on the early morning of March 12, saying it cost the city of Albany more than $20,000.
More than 40 students and others were charged in the aftermath of an alcohol-fueled melee that erupted after a night of drinking in advance of Albany's St. Patrick's Day parade.
The rioting in Albany's Pine Hills neighborhood saw groups of unruly youth take to the streets and overturn cars.
