NORTH MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. - Thirty-five people were arrested on a variety of charges at an event at House of Blues in North Myrtle Beach on Thursday night, officials said.

North Myrtle Beach Police released final arrest reports Tuesday that total 34 underage arrests and a 22-year-old woman at the event, which was a sold-out appearance by “I'm Shmacked,” which posts videos on YouTube of drunken behavior and "partying."

On Friday, 15 people under 21 were confirmed by police as being arrested at the event for various charges including disorderly conduct, urinating in public, minors in possession of alcohol, and altering ID cards. As police released more information on Tuesday, it emerged 20 more people were arrested.

The group “I'm Shmacked” was described as “the fastest-growing party brand on America's college circuit,” by the Syracuse Post-Standard.

Detractors of the group say that it promotes binge drinking and over-the-top behavior.

The Upstart Business Journal describes their exploits like this: "The parties get bigger. The girls get naughtier. The music gets louder and the alcohol flows faster."

The group made national headlines last fall when its presence coincided with "near riots" at University of Delaware.

The Thursday concert, which was aimed at Coastal Carolina University students,  kicked off the band's 25-event "Fall Crawl" series. The event was sold out and the Shmacked organizers Tweeted “CCU is insane!!!!!!!!!”

    A former police officer recalls how he nearly lost his life in the line of duty one evening back in 1970. He was paralyzed from the waist down but didn't let them hold him back from working or helping implement big changes for police officer's training and cars. It's been nearly 44 years since that day Gilbert Smith was ordered to take a drunken suspect found on the road to jail.
