Of course, rowdy behavior is hardly unheard of during Ocean City in June, that monthlong celebration of “Senior Week.” That’s when crowds of teens pack into rental houses, with loads of alcohol and little adult supervision to party after their high school graduations. Debauchery ensues — as do citations for open containers of alcohol, drunkenness and fights.

Locals nickname them, with affection and annoyance, “June bugs.”
