the pool Several witnesses reported individuals walking around naked and streaking in the pool patio area. One female student from the University of Nevada at Las Vegas was talking with friends on the patio Saturday evening when a sheet of glass from one of the upper floor windows was pushed out. She suffered a concussion from glass shards striking her head. It was determined later that the glass was pushed out of the window by people who were pressing their bare buttocks on the window while "mooning" the crowd below.
In the pool itself, groups of men and women engaged in "chicken fights," where a man carried female teammates on their shoulders and the goal of the game was for one woman to take the bathing suit top off her opponent. By all accounts, the activity was consensual, and none of the women were naval officers.
