Police Hand Out 76 Citations During Whiteout Weekend

To most students and alumni, the Whiteout weekend is filled with crazy tailgates, great food, and even better football. To the State College Police Department, it’s filled with nothing but headaches.

According to the State College Police, starting Thursday night, the phone lines were non-stop. Ranging from 6 p.m. Thursday night to 6 a.m. Sunday morning, the police said that they received just less than 200 calls. Thirty-two of those were for alcohol-related incidents in which medical assistance was needed.

The citation numbers were also large: Police said there was a total of 76 non-traffic citations issued this weekend, 24 for public intoxication and 17 for underage drinking. Other citations included open containers, public urination, retail theft, and scattering of rubbish.

Throughout numerous house and apartment parties, 11 warnings were issued, whereas only four received citations.

On a positive note, there were only two DUI’s and zero misdemeanors.
