Amanda Michaels | Wednesday, October 13, 2004

Police arrested nine people, including five Notre Dame students, and cited 25 for alcohol related offenses before and during Saturday’s Stanford game.

Notre Dame Security/Police assistant director Chuck Hurley said five of the arrests were made outside the stadium in the parking lots before and during the game. Two students were taken into custody – one for minor in possession, false identification and resisting law enforce and the other for public intoxication, resisting law enforcement, minor in possession and possession of false identification, Hurley said.

Two of the adults were arrested for public intoxication and public indecency, urinating in the parking lot, according to Hurley, and the third for public intoxication, disorderly conduct and resisting law enforcement.

Another adult was taken into custody near LaFortune for public intoxication and public indecency, said Hurley.

NDSP director Rex Rakow also said there were 25 citations for minor in possession and minor in consumption issued outside of the stadium, including nine students. Police also issued one trespass warning for unspecified reasons and one University citation for public intoxication.

Hurley said police made three arrests inside the stadium as well. One student was arrested for public intoxication and a second student for public intoxication, false identification and minor in possession of alcohol. The third individual was also taken into custody for public intoxication.

Rakow said there were 11 ejections from the game for intoxication.

Hurley said three students were also cited for minor in possession on the west side of campus Friday evening.

At last week’s Purdue game, police custodially arrested nine people prior to the game including one Notre Dame student for public intoxication and resisting arrest, said Lt. Greg Deitchly of the Indiana Excise Police.

In addition, three people were arrested during the game, although both NDSP and South Bend Police would not release details on those arrests.

Indiana Excise Police were unavailable for comment and could not provide names of arrested students.
