At least 6 hurt and nearly 70 arrests in 'Go Topless Jeep weekend' in Texas

At least six people were hospitalized following a weekend long event called Go Topless Jeep Beach weekend in Bolivar.

The annual gathering of Jeep, ATV and big truck enthusiasts brought thousands of people to the Crystal Beach area.

This year the event was forced to bring in extra law enforcement, and medical response crews from surrounding towns and counties.

Sheriff officials told ABC13 that 621 calls for service were made and most were directly related to the event.

A woman posted on social media that her son was one of those in critical condition with head trauma, including bleeding of the brain, stating that he was in a coma, and needed prayers because he had a son of his own.
He had fallen off a truck and was struck by another driver, she wrote.

Videos were posted of fights on the beach Saturday night. “There’s a lot of drunks and a lot of partying. A lot of young kids just going wild,” said Amanda Holbrook, who’s been to ‘Jeep Beach’ weekend several times.
