48 revelers arrested at University of Akron

The Associated Press

        AKRON — Police arrested 48 people, including 25 students, on various charges during end-of-class celebrations at the University of Akron.

        Friday night's party-goers were relatively calm, and there were no reports of injuries or property damage, police said Saturday.

        Sgt. Warren Webb said 47 adults and one juvenile were arrested on charges including public intoxication, drug distribution and weapons charges.

        Sgt. Webb said 100 officers from four agencies monitored the crowd.

        There were few problems reported Friday night at other campuses.

        Last year, 137 people were arrested at Ohio State University and 71 were arrested at Kent State during “May Day” celebrations.
