The State College Police Department reported 160 arrests during State Patty's weekend -- more than the total arrests during the past two State Patty's weekends combined.
Police said they responded to 365 total calls for service throughout this past weekend, trumping last year's total of 311 and 2008's 262. Officers made 79 arrests in 2009 and 56 in 2008.
With the exception of DUIs -- 10 this year compared to last year's 14 -- statistics are higher than ever before, police said.
"The trend seems to be going the wrong way," State College Police Department Capt. Dana Leonard said. "Everything is upward trending in the past three years -- calls are up, alcohol overdoses are double. It's a disturbing three-year trend."
Leonard said more than half of the arrests made by police involved non-students or visitors to State College, adding they were a significant problem throughout the weekend.
Penn State Spokeswoman Lisa Powers said she hoped the combined resistance from community and Penn State officials would have lessened the severity of the holiday.
"This was just a selfish, dangerous event with no merit that caused ill will in the town, cost a lot of resources, time and money, and took away from real security and safety needs," Powers said. "It's a shame."
State College Mayor Elizabeth Goreham said the "staggering" numbers are embarrassing and had her "flinching in regret."
She singled out visitors, saying she hopes Penn State students aren't blamed entirely for other individuals' actions.
"We want people to visit our town and appreciate it and enjoy it, but we don't want them to trash our town or trash themselves," Goreham said.
There were 24 alcohol overdoses reported by police this year, up from 21 in 2009 and 12 in 2008, police said.
Disorderly parties were up, too, with 37 reported this year, compared to 31 reported in 2009 and 24 reported in 2008.
And while neither Goreham nor Leonard could find a solution to the weekend's events, they said they both remain hopeful it will change in the future.
"We're better than that," Goreham said. "The only way it can stop is if students stop it -- the student body not wanting to promote it. We're all adults here, whether or not we act like it."
