Alcohol Violations Galore at Central Michigan

Welcome Week saw 74 minors-in-possession-of-alcohol tickets.


Combined police forces at Central Michigan University report issuing 74 minors-in-possession-of-alcohol violations during the Welcome Week weekend this past Thursday to Sunday—higher than the number of tickets issued in the four past years for which numbers were available to the newspaper, Central Michigan Life reports. The total number of alcohol violations, which include DUI, drunk and disorderly, and open intoxication, is closer to double that. The figures include tickets issued by campus, city, and county police.

Despite the arrests, law enforcement officials said the weekend went "pretty decently" and was a "fairly peaceful weekend."
