Wild RAGBRAI party shut down

Posted:

NEAR CARTERSVILLE (KWWL)-- A RAGBRAI party at a private pond near Cartersville was busted Wednesday afternoon after deputies say swimmers started taking off their clothes.

Authorities say one out of every ten people were either not wearing shorts or were topless.

There were several thousand people at the pond party around 2:30 p.m. Authorities say many were under the influence of alcohol.

No arrests were made but the party was shut down by the State Patrol RAGBRAI alcohol team and deputies.

The RAGBRAI alcohol team is a special group of officers who follow the ride across Iowa, making sure that riders leave each community early enough so they're not on the route in the dark.
