What should be a fun parade and prideful demonstration of Irish heratige turned very ugly over the weekend in Albany as a riot broke out among college-aged children who demolished cars and tossed beer bottles along Hudson Street in the New York State Capitol.

Police have released images of 27 people who they said were either involved in criminal activity that morning or may have information about what happened.

Five people were charged with felonies, and nearly 40 others were issued appearance tickets for violations such as disorderly conduct.
