Not Typical Jeeper Behavior at 'Go Topless' Event

Recommended Posts

I found this article to be not the norm for Jeepers, at least I thought. A weekend event called Go Topless Jeep Beach in Bolivar, Texas got out of hand, people were hurt, and many were arrested.

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

BOLIVAR, Texas (KABC) -- At least six people were hospitalized following a weekend long event called Go Topless Jeep Beach weekend in Bolivar, Texas.

 

It's an annual gathering of Jeep, ATV and big truck enthusiasts, and it brings 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.

 

The Galveston County Sheriff's Office confirmed 126 arrests Wednesday through Sunday at the Bolivar Peninsula with dozens of those arrests made for intoxication.

Looks like mostly lifted truck guys not seeing too many jeeps involved in the fracas

not typical Jeeper behavior and not really a Jeep or even off-road event... there was no requirement that you have a Jeep in order to attend. it seems the "Go Topless Jeep Beach" event is really just an excuse for a drunken frat beach party.

 

reminds me of Cinco de Mayo in the US - it's a bigger deal here than in Mexico, but only as an excuse to get drunk. i'm sure most Americans don't even have a vague idea why that date is significant.

As a former boat owner, we used to go to Havasu quite a bit. During the last several years, we had noticed this kind of

Behavior everywhere on the lake.
