No increase in Homecoming arrests

Arrests and citations issued over the Homecoming weekend were typical of past years, according to Mount Pleasant police agencies.

At the Oct. 4 game against Ohio, the Central Michigan University Police Department reported two arrests: One for minor in possession and resisting arrest, and the other for disorderly conduct and resisting arrest. CMUPD reported seven MIP citations and two citations for disorderly conduct.

There were 11 incidents requiring medical response professionals, two of which where emergency medical services transported individuals.

CMUPD Lt. Cameron Wassman said the football game required the most activity from police and outside of that the weekend was "fairly tame." He added the offenders were mostly CMU students, there were no problems with alumni visiting Mount Pleasant.

The Mount Pleasant Police Department reported 429 calls from 7 p.m. on Oct. 3 to 7 a.m. Oct. 5. Notable arrests and citations include: 27 for minor in possession and open intoxicants, seven for disorderly conduct, three warrant arrests, two for possession of marijuana, two for resisting and obstructing officers and one assault.

Public Information Officer Jeff Browne echoed Wassman's statement. He said there was nothing unusual about this Homecoming weekend as compared to previous years.
