Details released on "Unofficial" weekend

Posted:

Champaign authorities have released data on the 2016 “Unofficial” St. Patrick’s Day festivities.

In all, law enforcement issued 160 city ordinance violations, an increase over the 138 violations issued in 2015, according to a news release issued Thursday. Thirty-six of those violations came from four underage drinking parties, police said.

Three people were arrested “on state criminal charges and transported to the Champaign County Jail,” and 21 people were taken to hospitals for “alcohol incapacitation issues,” according to police.

Those issued ordinance violations ranged in age from 17 to 49 years old and came from universities and cities around the Midwest, according to a spreadsheet of incidents released by police.

Patrols were provided by police from Champaign, the University of Illinois, Urbana, Parkland College as well as Illinois State Police, the Champaign County Sheriff’s Office and the Illinois Liquor Control Commission, authorities said.

Police said there were no significant injuries reported this year.
