LONG BRANCH, N.J. - Authorities say a beach party that drew thousands to a New Jersey shore city prompted officials to shut the event down and resulted in four arrests.
The public safety director’s office of Long Branch said in a Facebook post Sunday that a social media post started the gathering along the beachfront around Pier Village Saturday night and attracted "what turned out to be thousands of young people."
Authorities said that at about 5 p.m. Saturday "drinking and unruly behavior began" and people were asked to leave the beach.
The crowd was eventually dispersed and four people were arrested for disorderly persons offenses.
