WHITEWATER Whitewater police say homecoming weekend was “tame” this year, drawing a typical number of drinking violations on and off campus.
Police Lt. Lisa Otterbacher said officers issued 65 citations last weekend—31 of which were alcohol related.
A week earlier, 132 tickets were written at an underage drinking party off UW-Whitewater’s campus. Otterbacher believes that publicized the strong police presence and might have resulted in fewer violators. Citation list
About 16 tickets were related to disorderly conduct, which includes disturbing the peace and public urination. Five citations were for vandalism and three people were brought into protective custody for drinking excessive amounts of alcohol.
Otterbacher said the department used three officers on bike patrol and had assistance from county and campus police.
