Unofficial totals: 310 tickets; 1 bad injury
CHAMPAIGN — After spending a week looking at reports, police have determined that 310 tickets were issued during last Friday's Unofficial St. Patrick's Day.
The majority, 177 of those tickets, were issued for minors in possession of alcohol. Another 87 tickets went for public possession of alcohol.
Police cited partiers who attended at least 48 different colleges and universities. University of Illinois students received 116 of the 310 tickets. Six different states were represented in the data — one offender came from Florida to participate.
The vast majority of offenders were of college age, but the youngest person ticketed on Unofficial St. Patrick's Day was 17 years old. The oldest person ticketed was 30.
Authorities said earlier this week that there were at least 12 Unofficial-related medical calls, eight of which resulted in ambulance rides to the hospital.
There is only one known serious injury: Police said a 21-year-old Naperville man who admitted he had been drinking fell from a balcony of an apartment building at 501 E. Healey St., C, and sustained a broken pelvis and broken bones on the left side of his face.
He remained hospitalized on Wednesday in good condition.
