BRIDGEPORT - Bridgeport neighbors are fed up and frustrated after spending the day cleaning up beer cans and other trash left behind by a late-night house party.

The party, which had about 300 guests, took place on Erika Circle off Oakwood Street in the North End.

Neighbors say cars packed the street, blocking off access to driveways.They say things got so unruly that even a street sign was pulled out of the ground.

Witnesses say that the residents of the house are students at nearby Sacred Heart University, and that this isn't their first run-in with them or the school.

A representative from Sacred Heart University couldn't comment on the event, but told News 12 that students who live off campus are held to the same standards as those who live on campus.

There is no word on whether any arrests were made.
