Football weekend leads to few DUI arrests

Few arrests were made in a Centre County Alcohol Task Force effort between Friday and Sunday, according to a press release.

Despite a crowd of more than 99,000 inside Beaver Stadium and more partying outside and around the area, the Ferguson, Patton and Spring townships and State College police departments saw only 39 incidents in three days. Only a dozen of those merited tickets or worse.

Three drivers were arrested for driving while under the influence of alcohol. Nine drivers were issued traffic citations for various violations. Additionally, 27 others drove away with warnings for a variety of traffic issues.
