Police in Mount Pleasant continue to look for the unruly students who attacked several officers and damaged three patrol cars early Sunday morning.
According to a news release issued by the Mount Pleasant Police Department, officers responded to several loud party complaints and fighting in the student housing section of South Main.
When officers arrived, they said they were met by people throwing rocks, bottles and debris at them.
No officers were injured, but three patrol cars suffered damage, including dents, scrapes, and a shattered window, Mount Pleasant officials said.
Detectives are reviewing in-car video and interviewing witnesses, according to the news release.
Once the individuals are identified, police said the department will seek criminal charges due to the seriousness of this matter.
