FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) – Flagstaff police made 41 arrests during the annual Tequila Sunrise and Northern Arizona University homecoming weekend patrol.
The Arizona Daily Sun reports that underage drinking was the most common offense during Saturday‘s bacchanal.
Flagstaff Police Department spokeswoman Sgt. Margaret Bentzen says NAU’s decision to move its Homecoming Parade on campus did not stop many people from taking part in the annual 6 a.m. bar crawl.
About a quarter of arrests Saturday were for violent behavior. Other arrests were for obscene conduct, which includes urinating and vomiting in the streets, theft, trespassing, property damage and littering.
Tequila Sunrise has been a divisive event in downtown Flagstaff, with some bars and restaurants embracing the early business, and other criticizing the unruly patrons roaming the streets.
