Spring-break arrests surge in Lake Havasu

LAKE HAVASU CITY, Ariz. — Lake Havasu police said they saw a surge in spring-break arrests this year.

Today’s News Herald reported underage drinking violations
more than doubled in 2013, with 186, compared to the same period in 2012 and
2011.

Police said hand-in-hand with an influx of people this year, was a near-tripling
in disorderly conduct arrests. There were 87 compared to about 30 in each of the
previous two years.

Police spokesman Sgt. Troy Stirling told the paper “underage consumption
arrests really went up this year.”

More than 70 people were arrested for drug offenses, twice the 2012 figure.
Police attributed that increase to a crackdown on drug crime.

DUI arrests ticked lower with 29, compared to around 30 the previous
two years.
