1190 North Pleasant Street, Saturday afternoon
With the official inauguration of UMass Chancellor Kumble Subbaswamy, SoccerFest, Amherst's Sustainability Festival, events at Amherst College and the Ice Stars for Warriors event at the Mullins Center, our quaint little college town was in overdrive this past weekend.
As was revelry of the obnoxious kind.

In all, Amherst Police made 38 arrests! All but two for rowdy activity fueled by alcohol: 13 for noise at numerous party houses, 13 for open container or underage drinking, 7 for "disorderly conduct" and one for DUI.
First up, the Bad Boys at 62 Summer Street -- all six of them!
Arrested for noise violations Saturday night around 11:00 PM:
220 North East St, Amherst
Next up, and about an hour later (midnight Saturday) but in another part of town, 220 North East Street:
owned, naturally, by an LLC.
Late Friday night into early Saturday morning Towne House Apartments -- #87 in particular -- was once again the scene of a large enough party to attract a police response. And four arrests:
Alpha Tau Gamma, 118 Sunset Avenue
The Hobart Hoedown failed to materialize (stationing a cruiser at the entrance to the complex helps) but an altercation did occur at 51 Hobart Lane 2:30 AM Sunday morning with police arresting perps for Disorderly Conduct:
Dominick M Ferrante, 88 Old Greenfield Road, Shelburne Falls, MA, age 21 and Tyson Dowdy, 4 Chapman, Greenfield, Ma, age 23
Once again a ubiquitous police presence -- UMPD, APD and State PD -- managed to keep a lid on any major disturbances, although if you are a neighbor to any of these cited party locations, not much consolation.
