Students hand over video, photos of pumpkin chaos

KEENE, N.H. (AP) — The president of Keene State College says students are turning over video and photos of the mayhem that broke out during a family-friendly pumpkin festival over the weekend.

Meanwhile, Keene police released about two dozen photos of people involved in the chaos and are asking the public to help identify them.

More than 80 people were arrested following the violent disturbances that led to property damage and dozens of injuries.

College President Anne Huot (HYOO'-iht) told WMUR-TV (http://bit.ly/1tKDGfk ) that students are volunteering images to help identify the rioters.

Police in riot gear used tear gas and pepper balls to control crowds as large as 2,000 people.

Huot says students who rioted will be punished in a way that deters destructive behavior.
