0 comments

A planned autograph session at a Center City record store was canceled by police earlier tonight after hundreds of rowdy kids crammed into the area.

Police spokesman Lt. Frank Vanore said 200 to 300 teens swarmed around the F.Y.E. store at Broad and Chesnut streets about 5:30 p.m. in anticipation of event organized by Power 99 FM. According to the radio station's Web site, R&B star Trey Songz was supposed to sign copies of his CD at the store from 5 to 7 p.m.

When the crowd became unruly, the radio station called off the autograph session, Vanore said. Scores of cops were called to the scene and helped disperse the crowd, he added. There were no reports of any arrests.
