Pequot Lakes High School senior class picture causes incident with Breezy Point Police

Students taking photos on Pelican Beach were stopped by police Sunday, Oct. 5. Breezy Point Police Chief Kevin Merschman said by phone that his officers received a report of 30-40 kids “partying” on Pelican Beach, which is closed for the season.

Because of the number of people involved, Merschman said, three officers responded to the beach, where more than 100 students were gathered for a class photo and began to exit the gated, locked beach.

“All the sudden there were more and more and more coming from the beach,” Merschman said. “Officers had no idea what wasgoing on. There were no adults  present other than this young photographer, and that’s not normal for a school-sponsored event.” He also said that on arrival, three students ran but were stopped without incident.
