Not a Record Breaker, But Still Plenty Of Spring Break Arrests

It's already been a busy Spring Break for local police.

Panama City Beach police officials released these numbers for their own department, as well as the Highway Patrol and the state Department of Alcoholic Beverage and Tobacco.

During the first 3-weeks of Spring Break, beach officers answered more than 3,300 calls for service, arrested 440-people, issued 886 traffic tickets, worked more than 200-traffic crashes, and answered 152 medical calls.

The numbers for the Florida Highway Patrol and Beverage Agents are just for the 2-week period from March 6th through March 19th.
State Troopers issued almost 3-thousand traffic tickets and made 15 D-U-I arrests.

State Beverage Agents have handled the bulk of the case against underage drinkers. They've made cases against 12-hundred-38 minors in-possession of alcohol, charged a total of 13-hundred people on an assortment of charges and arrested just under 13-hundred.

With 2-more weeks of spring break left, those numbers will go up.
