This one sounds pretty bad.
University of Minnesota police cited a Gopher linebacker for underage drinking after they broke up a brawl involving several University of Minnesota football players and residents of a house in Dinkytown Sunday morning, according to a police report.
University police officers passing by in an unmarked car saw Gopher linebacker Gary Tinsley “swinging around a wood board during the fight,” according to the police report.
Tinsley ran from the scene “extremely fast” when a uniformed University police officer arrived. The officer fired several rounds of PepperBall chemical irritant at Tinsley, who was undeterred by the measure and escaped by cutting between houses on the block, according to a University police report.
Police returned to the house several times during the evening for calls of similar types of incidents. Other scuffles erupted in Dinkytown throughout the evening, including a tussle in which police fired numerous PepperBalls into a crowd near the McDonald’s at the corner of 15th Street and 4th Street Southeast, according to a University Police report.
Sounds like a crazy night, but how tough do you sound saying you brawled in a place called Dinkytown?
