Over the weekend Salisbury Police broke up an outdoor bashed by Salisbury University students.

It occurred around 3:30 p.m. on Saturday where around 500 people were gathered outside the residents at Cedar Crossing dubbed the New Zoo by students.

Students said it was similar to a “War on the Shore” party.

This year the lacrosse game against Washington College was held during spring break when most students were not on campus.

In one year there was a major confrontation between students and police which led to arrests and tear gas used by authorities to disperse the crowd.

The Salisbury Daily Times reports that student believe the War on the Shore was moved to Spring Break to avoid another such incident.

Students say Saturday’s gathering was held to coincide with the SU-St. Mary’s College men’s lacrosse game at nearby Sea Gull Stadium.
