WKYT reports:

Louisville Police say they’re now investigating a teenager accused of starting “Purge” rumors in the city.

Police also say they did not see a higher crime rate around Louisville Friday night. They did, however, receive a high number of anonymous tips, most of which turned out to be unfounded.

A flier for a proposed “Purge” in Louisville got the attention of the FBI, local police departments, and even Jefferson County Public Schools.

So, what’s a Louisville Purge sound like?
