After the rugby club’s behavior on a night out, a student sends a message to the pub and his neighbors.
A student who was part of a big group of males accused of harassing pub employees and causing damage to e-scooters has apologized.
The student admitted the group’s behavior was “inappropriate” in a Facebook post to a number of south Liverpool Facebook groups, and apologized to anyone who felt “uncomfortable” as a result of their activities.
He explained that the club’s behavior was the result of their “excitement” pouring out onto the streets after their first rugby game in almost a year.
Neighbors complained to the university about the students’ unruly behavior after the event on Tuesday night, which began in the Dovedale Towers bar in Mossley Hill.
The students had been drinking earlier in the evening in the pub, and according to one witness, they had “dumped scooters over the pavement, harassed bar personnel, and made enough noise to be heard streets away.”
A video provided with the ECHO by local resident Lisa Boogie showed a big group of males yelling loudly and swearing while walking along Crawford Avenue, many of them were wearing similar shirts and ties.
Following that, some members of the group were seen crashing and wrecking an e-scooter in the neighborhood.
As they marched through the area, witnesses stated they were climbing on walls and obstructing cars from driving down Crawford Avenue, and another witness said he saw two of the guys vomit near a nursery.
The group’s actions were reported on Penny Lane Gossip and other Facebook groups, with one local referring to them as the “poundshop Bullingdon Boys.”
Since then, the university has condemned the behavior as “completely unacceptable,” and has stated that it is seeking to identify those responsible and will take necessary disciplinary action.
“We are presently investigating accusations of anti-social behavior involving members of one of our student rugby clubs last night,” a University of Liverpool official stated.
“The investigation into identifying and contacting the persons implicated is underway, and we will take appropriate disciplinary action if necessary.
“Clearly, the alleged behavior was completely unacceptable and did not reflect the University’s values or the behavior we demand from our students. The summary comes to a close.
