Crowd of 1,000 behind 17 Hobart Lane Sunday 3:30 PM like leaves on a tree
Townhouse Apartments Sunday 3:15 PM
The party scene on Sunday shifted from the west quad at Townhouse Apartments in North Amherst to Hobart Lane somewhat around the corner off North Pleasant Street.
As they did the previous day Amherst police made individual arrests for "liquor law violations" (open container and underage drinking) but pretty much let the crowd, who were gathered on private property, have their day in the sun.
Mill River Recreation area Sunday afternoon
Police also responded a number of times to the Mill River Recreation area for noise and parking complaints from a large student related gathering that had a permit to use the town property.
The Spring Concert at the Mullins Center Sunday night was designed to keep students on campus so they would not be a burden on town first responders.
But the two extra outside detail ambulances that Chief Nelson requires of them were not enough to handle the slew of substance abuse cases, five of which happened within an hour.
All told Mullins Center Command had 30 patient contacts, with 8 transported to Cooley Dickinson Hospital (three by AFD and five by special detail ambulances) and another patron taken into Protective Custody by UMPD.
Although, sadly, these numbers were pretty much in the predicted range.
