Citations rise during busy move-in weekend

 

 

Citations spiked this weekend as students returned and tractors were pulled.

While not all citations increased dramatically, some, such as underage alcohol or open container, soared.

The large amount of people in the city is the explanation for the increase, said Lt. Tony Hetrick with the Bowling Green Police Division.

“With more people, there will be more violations,” Hetrick said.

He said the increase in citations is normal for this time of year because of move-in weekend and the National Tractor Pull Championships.

“Typically there is an increase in our workload with that many people in town,” he said.

The numbers are not likely to decrease any time soon either.

“I’d say it will probably continue throughout the fall,” Hetrick said.
