Dozens arrested at ‘Go Topless Jeep Weekend’ in Texas: Reports

Dozens are in police custody after the so-called “Go Topless Jeep Weekend” in southern Texas apparently spiraled out of control.

According to local ABC affiliate KTRK, “more than 86 arrests” were made “in just 24 hours” as the Jeep rally kicked off at a beach about an hour north of Galveston. By Sunday morning, at least 151 had been arrested in connection with the event.

Most of those arrested have been charged with public intoxication, a misdemeanor. Others face charges of disorderly conduct, KTRK reports, and one man was arrested “for breaking into homes and vehicles.”

Arrests at Jeep rally

The rally, which happens each year on the Bolivar Peninsula, was once a simple “gathering of Jeep lovers who took off the tops from their off-road Jeeps and would then cruise the beach,” KTRK said.

But over the last several years, the event has skyrocketed in popularity, KTRK reported, and partygoers headed to Texas again this year despite lingering concerns about the coronavirus.

According to Breitbart, law enforcement presence at the event was heavy, with “more than 60 sheriff’s office deputies and 15 state troopers” being deployed to keep the partying under control.

More arrests were made this year than in years past. According to Breitbart, some 100 people were taken into custody in connection to the event in 2019, and at least 63 people were arrested there in 2020.

According to Houston’s KHOU 11, two people were also shot around the time of last year’s gathering, although it’s unclear if they were taking part in the festivities.

So far, no deaths have been reported as a result of the event.

Partying amid COVID-19

The rally comes just days after the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) started relaxing its guidelines for Americans on mask wearing amid COVID-19. According to the Associated Press, the CDC says Americans don’t need to wear masks outdoors in most cases, and those who are fully vaccinated can forgo face coverings indoors, too, in most circumstances, the CDC said Thursday.

The state of Texas, for its part, rolled back its mask requirements back in March, which may have had something to do with the size of this year’s Jeep rally.

One can only hope justice will be served in the cases of those whose partying got a little out of hand this weekend.

OMG I mean, ok, they got rowdy but their not the home grown terrorists like BLM/Antifa/cartel…that the police departments, military just let and allow these scum bags burn buildings, intimidate-threaten-and murder innocent people, destroy personal property, spew racist hate to white people…why aren’t you concentrating on putting these creeps behind Bars and throwing away the keys.

      Hit the streets & start locking up BLM & antifa thugs now!
      This is bs, we all know it, time to take back our country folks!!

      1. That is correct. BLM and Antifa are terrorists not partygoers. Let’s get real with the real stuff!

  6. So if being a man, I want to drive my jeep topless, will this get me arrested or would it be the unopened beer next to me?????……Drunk’n and driving don’t mix…..

    1. Actually, men should not be showing off their nipples as well as ladies. There is a rule of etiquette that many men were never taught.

      1. You do know they are talking about the tops of their Jeep’s. Right. Nothing to do with nudity, although 99.9% of all men DO got topless on a beach.

        Catch up Marie

  7. Have blm and antifa burning and killing but lets just them keep doing it because a white supremacy President can’t be a true American president sitting in the white house. Our justice system is run by Unamerican idiots. Did you get that FBI,DOJ, CIA, post office. Your spying on me but do nothing to stop the destruction of America.

    1. That is what they are trying to do! They want to destroy America. Obama tried and did not succeed in 2008-2016 and now he is going to do it! This is Obama 3.0 term and he is looking for another term, so that he can make sure that we will never recover from this communist agenda. Communists take hold and it can last for 20 years or more, if the citizens are too ignorant to do their homework before they vote. NOT AFTER !

  8. If you were looking for a way to earn some extra income every week… Look no more!!!! Here is a great opportunity for everyone to make $95/per hour by working in your free time on your computer from home… I’ve been doing this for 6 months now and last month i’ve earned my first five-figure paycheck ever!!!!
