A 21-year-old Hillsdale man was charged with inciting a riot by police in Norfolk, Va., after a college party at Old Dominion University got out of control, The Virginian-Pilot reported.
Ben Fredette was filming the party for a website called "I'm Shmacked," according to the report. Police arrested him after some partiers smashed and damaged an SUV parked on the street.
Police also had warrants out for two other I'm Shmacked employees — Arya Toufanian and Collin Morisi — according to the report.
Toufanian, the co-founder of I'm Shmacked, told The Virginian-Pilot that Fredette was acting as a journalist.
The company was selling T-shirts with the company's logo and "ODU RIOT SHMACKED" printed on them after the incident.
“I’m Schmacked” is a video series where a group visits college campuses
and spring break locations to tape student life, mainly parties. The
Facebook page claims, “no alcohol or illegal substance is used, just prop.”
