Town and Gown Fight Between MacMurray College Students and Jacksonville Reisdents


In college communities, conflicts between “town and gown” are nothing new.

 

But they don’t usually go this far.

 

Nine people have been arrested in Jacksonville after a huge fight broke out between MacMurray College students and a group of Jacksonville residents.

 

Authorities tell the State Journal-Register the dispute may have begun several weeks ago, when a group of “townies” were asked to leave a student’s off-campus party.

 

The argument escalated Tuesday night, when authorities say the community residents came to the campus and assaulted a group of students, triggering the fight.
