LepraCon 2016 Hits Hoboken St. Patricks Day [PHOTOS]

Lepracon

Anyone who lives in the tri-state area knows that Hoboken knows how to throw down for a crazy party. So who’s really that surprised to learn that the city can’t even wait for the real St. Patrick’s Day before they throw their annual LepraCon Bar Crawl?

For those of you who don’t know, this is an all-day event that puts the word “out of control to shame.” Despite heavy police presence and security, residents and visitors tend to get crunker than a mug. NJ.com reports that “arrests this year increased by four over 2015, and [Police Chief] Ferrante specifically cited the arrest of a former college football player for allegedly breaking a city officer’s ribs and dislocating another’s shoulder.”

We don’t have the video of that former football player getting tackled, but we do have these photos and clips.
