Brimfield Police arrested 18 college students late last night after neighbors called to report a raging party.

According to the police, party-goers began sprinting away from the house when the police cruisers arrived.

18 of the runners were caught.

It is not clear where the students attend school.

Kent police were called in for backup.

The Brimfield Police Chief David Oliver posted this to the Brimfield Police Department Facebook page:

"Although we didn't receive official invitations, some of the neighbors believed we should make an appearance....likely because we are internet sensations and generally the life of most parties...oh, and the drunk people in the street may have been a for calling us Johnny Law types."

The Brimfield police department was recently in the limelight due to articles that the Associated Press and ABC news wrote on Oliver and his clever Facebook posts.

In regards to last night's incident, Oliver's post went on to say, "When we arrived, the intoxicated people in attendance were so awe struck by seeing famous officers, they began to run away. It looked like a cartoon. After the dust settled and all of the drunken 100 yard dash participants were rounded up....we counted 18 physical arrests, for various offenses."

Busted.
