Willimantic police arrested eight people during Eastern Connecticut State University spring weekend, but said they are pleased with the way the weekend turned out.
“We are very pleased with how the weekend turned out. The fireworks display at the ECSU ball field was well received by all including city residents who were on hand to view them. The bar crawl Saturday night also went smoothly with a couple of hundred students participating. City police would like to thank all of the students for their fine behavior and to wish the out-going seniors all of the best with the next chapter in the lives,” Cpl. Stanley Parizo, Jr. said in a statement.
Eight people were charged with breach of peace and released on promises to appear in court.
