Law enforcement officers dealt with over a dozen minor in possession of alcohol incidents Saturday.

“I think we had four that day inside the stadium,” WSU Police Assistant Chief Steve Hansen said.

In addition to the four that were charged that day, Hansen said that he believes there were a total of 13 ejections due to minors with alcohol related offenses from the past weekend’s clash with the Boise State Broncos.

Two of the incidents did not appear in the WSU Police Department crime logs until Tuesday. This was due to another agency arresting the individual and the WSU Police Department requesting the case number so they could be the agency to charge the individual, Hansen said.

Hansen said, although there were numerous alcohol offenses, that spectators have been well-behaved this year. He also said that the amount of problems they had to deal with Saturday was average compared to previous years.

The amount of crime that takes place also depends on other factors.

“These things are weather-dependent,” Hansen said. “It depends on the game, who we’re playing, the time of the game. There are various factors.”
