Police ejected 14 people from the stadium. Paramedics treated 114 people for medical issues, and nine people required hospitalization.
In a summary sent Saturday evening, police officials reported one person in the crowd was arrested for being a minor in possession of alcohol, and three people received citations —two for having alcohol in the stadium and one for possession of fake identification. Eleven other people were removed from Michigan Stadium.
Four of those ejections were for alcohol in the stadium, three were for minors in possession of alcohol, three were for disorderly conduct and one was for possession of a false identification, officials said.
