APD on scene College Street Saturday 4:00 p.m.
While there were somewhat loud graduation parties all over Amherst on Saturday afternoon into the overnight (10 complaints) -- many of them with live entertainment -- Amherst police made no arrests and issued no $300 fines.
These parties were more like traditional family-and-friends ceremonial affairs rather than exclusively "college aged youth" gatherings we've seen and heard all semester, so apparently the presence of older adults tends to keep things from getting out of control.
Perhaps all party houses should be forced to have a grandparent move in after the second noise offense.
No AFD runs at all to UMass for ETOH (alcohol intoxication) students:
