NEW ROCHELLE, NY -- New Rochelle Police will be on alert this weekend following reports that New Rochelle High School students have planned a heavily sexualized “Road Rally” event similar to a scavenger hunt involving drugs, alcohol and public nudity. The activities are planned to take place throughout New Rochelle including on private property, public streets, and school grounds.
The event is described as a contest “involving many high school students, mostly seniors”, where they “earn” points by video taping themselves in certain activities that range from silly (“Put the underwear you’re wearing on your head”), to rude (“Take food off someone’s plate, take a bite and put it back”) , to dangerous (“Twerk on the roof of a car - double if car is moving”). Many of the activities are sexual in nature ranging from performing certain acts while naked or engaging in sexual acts including, in one case, with animals. Many involve alcohol and drug use and all encourage or require students to be naked while performing the activities to earn the maximum number of “points”.
Under the “rules” of the event, teams of six students drive around New Rochelle, drinking and getting high, while performing activities which, to qualify, must be recorded using a video camera (iPhones are, for some reason, prohibited). Dozens of activities, listed across three pages, are broken down into categories of point values with asterisks denoting activities eligible for bonus points if performed naked.
City Manager Charles B. Strome told Talk of the Sound the New Rochelle Police Department is aware of the planned Road Rally. The Patrol Division has been advised and will be monitoring the situation.
“Any illegal activity reported or observed will be investigated and enforcement will be taken where appropriate,” said Captain Robert Gazzola. “Likewise any disorderly or disruptive behavior will be dealt with as deemed necessary.”
The event was first disclosed in a letter to Talk of the Sound from a “Concerned Parent” detailing the event, planned for this Sunday, and providing screen grabs of a Road Rally checklist. The letter states, and police and school sources confirm, that a similar event was held last year, on the Sunday before Columbus Day. Students posted images, videos and accounts of their exploits after last year’s event — sometimes topless or naked, in or near public establishments and performing dangerous stunts. Last year, police officers detained a number of students who were turned over to school security, sources say.
Some of the activities entail interactions with parents. and parents of students appear to be involved directly or tacitly, holding “after” parties in which students arrive highly intoxicated, under the influence of drugs and alcohol.
