Penn State Police said weekend crime activity wasn’t out of the ordinary for a Homecoming weekend, including the activity that surrounded Saturday’s football game.
From Thursday night through Sunday morning, Penn State Police issued 33 citations for underage drinking, 19 citations for public drunkenness, two citations for disorderly conduct and 10 people were transported to the hospital, according to the Penn State University Police and Fire Daily Activity Log.
Penn State Police said the weekend was average for a Homecoming football weekend, but official numbers will not be released until today.
The State College Police Department also fielded many ordinance violation calls, like playing music too loudly, but on the whole, nothing was out of the ordinary, police said.
Typical incidents included disorderly conduct, underage drinking and borough ordinance violations, police said.
A man was cited with underage drinking, public urination and harassment after urinating inside Alexander Court, 309 E. Beaver Ave., and striking a courtesy officer at the apartment complex at about 5:15 a.m. Sunday, the State College Police Department said.
The man then attempted to flee police but was caught, State College Police said.
Police said they could not identify whether the man was a Penn State student.
In a separate incident, an apartment at Imperial Towers Apartments, 425 Waupelani Drive, was broken into and burglarized at an unknown time between Friday night and Saturday morning, State College Police said.
The tenants of the apartment reported a 37” flat screen TV and a Guitar Hero drumstick missing, State College Police said. No one was home at the time of the burglary and the apartment was left unlocked, State College Police said.
Police said the investigation is ongoing.
Neither Penn State Police nor the State College Police Department could release official citation numbers as of press time Sunday.
