Miami Beach Mayor: ‘If You’re Coming Here to Go Crazy, Go Somewhere Else’

It’s not a party until somebody calls the cops:

Miami Beach Mayor Dan Gelber declared a state of emergency and set a curfew Saturday, saying the crowds that have descended on the city recently are “more than we can handle.”
“Too many are coming, really, without the intention of following the rules, and the result has been a level of chaos and disorder that is just something more than we can endure,” Gelber told CNN’s Ana Cabrera.
An 8 p.m. curfew will be put in place in the city’s entertainment district, and some roads will be closed, Gelber said at a news conference Saturday. The measures will be in effect for the next 72 hours, he said.
The causeways to Miami Beach from the mainland will be closed to non-local traffic starting at 9 p.m. for the next few nights, Gelber said.
At night, “it feels like a rock concert, wall-to-wall people over blocks and blocks,” Gelber told Cabrera.
On Friday night, someone shot a weapon into the air, and there was a riot, he said. . . .
“If you’re coming here because you’ve been pent up and you want to let loose, you think anything goes, please don’t come here,” Gelber told CNN. “We have extra police everywhere, we’re going to arrest people, and we have been. We’re going to keep order.”
“If you’re coming here to go crazy, go somewhere else. We don’t want you,” Gelber said.
