APD makes alcohol related arrest after MV stop corner of Lincoln/Fearing last night 11:05 PM
Once again a major police presence and preemptive police footwork seemed to keep a lid on loud out of control parties last night as Amherst Police started the evening with courtesy calls ("community policing") to some of the usual suspects on Alan Street, Phillips Street, and Nutting Avenue.
Comfortable weather brings out the crowds, and it seems freshmen move in herds, but it also allows the APD bike patrol to operate at full efficiency. They made a good number of "liquor law violation" arrests in and around the immediate neighboring streets to UMass starting at around 10:00 PM.

AFD was also kept busy with alcohol related runs.
A fight at the corner of Lincoln Avenue and Fearing Street around 11:00 PM resulted in a head injury for a college aged male. And almost two hours later AFD responded to the UMass campus for an ETOH male who had fallen and hit his head. Liquor, naturally, was involved.
Last weekend the boisterous activity peaked on Sunday night into early Monday morning due to the Labor Day long weekend. Tonight's weather is going to be a tad warmer than yesterday.
Neighbors are now holding their breath.
