Macing and mayhem video from Fort Collins' NewWestFest: "Riot! Riot! F**k it up!"

Today, Fort Collins Police will reportedly review video footage from rioting that broke out early Sunday morning following Bohemian Nights at NewWestFest in Old Town. The incident sparked multiple arrests and the burning of at least one vendor tent, presumably in honor of an element in the name of headliner Earth, Wind & Fire.

Turns out there's plenty of video to peruse.

Page through below to check out multiple clips of the craziness, including shots of macing and a snippet (after the first jump) in which an admittedly drunk cell-phone videographer yells, "Riot! Riot! Fuck it up!"
