Friday Funny: Party Goes Overboard During Last Call on London's Tube

London's underground subway system recently banned the consumption of alcoholic beverages, and to celebrate the last night of drunken train commuting, Londoners converged on trains to get hammered. They also got rowdy, assaulted and arrested.

"Four tube drivers, three other staff members, and two police officers were assaulted, and there were 17 arrests."

"Several trains were damaged and withdrawn from service, which led to suspended services."

"Drinkers gathered on Tube trains and station concourses for a last drink before the ban came in at midnight."

"Police said what should have been a fun event came to an 'unfortunate' end."

"The ban on drinking from - or carrying - open containers of alcohol applies to the Tube, London buses, Docklands Light Railway and trams as of midnight on Saturday."

"It was announced by London Mayor Boris Johnson shortly after he took office, with the aim of making public transport safer and more pleasant."
