Shit got real at Rutgersfest 2011 to the point where the folks over at Bob's Blitz declared the shootings and evacuations "helped transform New Brunswick into Eastern Libya."

Police Director Pete Mangarella called the annual day-long free event, featuring games, rides and a concert, "the worst thing of the year for the city of New Brunswick." He added that the incidents "were the worst we have seen" in the history of the event.

Looks about right. YouTube!
