CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

A New Year's Eve party at a downtown club came to an abrupt end early Wednesday morning after an unknown person sprayed the crowd with pepper spray just as the ball dropped.

Police were called out to Club Pantheon at roughly 12 a.m. Wednesday after someone released peppery spray on the dance floor, an incident report states.

According to a post by an employee on the club's Facebook page, the incident occurred during a $3,000 money drop, which rang in the New Year. 

Police say officers attempted to find the suspect, but no one at the club saw the person who released the peppery spray.

Those who were hit with the spray were treated by EMS, and the club was then closed for the evening, officers say.

A Facebook post from Club Pantheon states they are offering a $1,000 reward for information on the suspect's identity.

If you have any information on this incident, call Crime Stoppers at 843-554-1111.
