A trio of teenagers were arrested after allegedly causing chaos at McCarren Park Pool on Sunday afternoon.

The pool was packed to maximum capacity late Sunday afternoon when the three young men started jumping into the pool over and over again, frightening other swimmers, and committing the cardinal pool-side sin, running near the pool, police said.

“They were acting in a dangerous manner and causing alarm to the other people in the pool,” said NYPD officer Sophia Tassy-Mason. “The way they were running around the pool, they could have hurt someone.”

Pool security told the teens to leave, but they instead started running around the pool and shoving pool patrons as they dodged authorities according to police.

When the cops showed up, the teens ran from them too, and allegedly tried to shimmy away when they were captured.

Police charged Jose Carrero, 17, with reckless endangerment, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct. They charged Guillermo Coronador, 18, with reckless endangerment and disorderly conduct. Jevone McIlwain, 19, is facing charges of assault for hitting a cop, as well as disorderly conduct.

These were the first arrests since the pool opened for the season on June 27. So far this year, the pool has been much calmer than last year, when there were several arrests in the first week that the pool was open and the city repeatedly shut it down.

I was trying to get in my late afternoon lap pool swim. So far its been peaceful but all measures should be taken to deter hood rat violence.

The kids might be causing a little trouble, but the police don't exactly help the situation. I got scolded for letting my 5 year old change by the lockers when you first walk into the womens locker room. He was aggressive and scared the kids. Then he walked away and started telling anyone who would listen. As I was leaving he charged me and said, "You know, you don't have to come back." I said neither do you and informed another police officer about this behavoir. What's the policeman doing looking at a little naked kid anyway?

most of the posts are rubbish. I use two city pools. I am white with my grandkids. Never had a problem...did have my glasses stolen once at a public pool...in Lawton OK. There is a police presence at all city pools. The pool had one incident on a hot day...maybe they should close the subway too...

"If" mookie. But it wasn't, and it never will be. Your point is pointless. It's like saying ... "I bet if Greenpeace had pulled off the 9-11 terrorist attacks instead of Al Qaeda, everyone would be saying blah blah blah."

A totally retarded comment. The point is, it was the children of mooks who were misbehaving, and they get it from their parents. It's an old tradition.

Next thing we'll hear is that none of these behavioral problems that have plagued mook Brooklyn for half a century would exist if Josh and Megan hadn't moved to Bushwick last week.

I bet if it were three Muslims in their mid-twenties everyone would be saying it was a terrorist attack.

I bet if it were three hookers from Jersey City everyone would be saying there goes the neighborhood.

I bet if it were three members of the City Council everyone would be saying it was a political demo of some kind.

And I bet if it were three mooks in their late teens who should know better, the Chooch would be saying it proves his point.

@the chooch from the ghetto
At least the fist pumping guidos & the bros are at the jersey shore or out to Long Island. Come to think of it they should have a program that takes the hood rats out there.

The Chooch from from your ghetto says:
Are you kidding! The Chooch has a bootcamp for hood rats right here. But they're pussies, they can't take a hit. They want to be tough guys from "real Brooklyn." Soon as I get "real" on them they clam up behind all this mamsy pamsy pc crap that they actually picked up from the hipsters. It's a joke. WAAAAAAH ... YOU CAN'T SAY THAT ... WAAAAH ... THAT'S NOT ALLOWED!!!

"Interloper" from Kent Ave says:
I wouldn't go near that pool if you paid me to. I can't even count the number of fights / pool pooping incidents that were reported in the papers last summer. Plus when I go to a pool, I go there to relax. I pretty much hate the children of strangers as well so this really isn't the right type of place for me. I know that's pretty snobby, but I could care less.

For those of you that enjoy this pool, I'm glad that you do, I'll be cooling off elsewhere.

I bet it was diehipster's kids. That knuckle dragging ape and his family have only been out of the trees for 200 years. I think I'll take the behaved kooky hipsters over the young thieving/drug dealing/assault and battery in training thugs from "REAL BROOKLYN". LOL
