Police eject 64 people during the Michigan vs. Michigan State game
It was a busy day in the Big House for police officers, who arrested six and ejected 64 during Saturday's Michigan vs. Michigan State game.
In total, police dealt with 72 people — down from 112 when the Wolverines and Spartans met in Michigan Stadium two years ago.
But during the 2008 game, police tossed out fewer people — 43 total.
Diane Brown, a spokeswoman for the University of Michigan Department of Public Safety, said ejections have been up this season.
Saturday's arrests included two for being a minor in possession of alcohol, two for violation of the controlled substances act, one for disorderly conduct, and one for assault and battery.
The reasons for the 64 ejections included:
- 29 for disorderly conduct.
- 14 for violating stadium rules.
- 10 for possessing someone else's ID.
- 7 for alcohol in the stadium.
- 1 for throwing projectiles.
- 1 for trespassing.
- 1 for assault and battery.
- 1 for violation of the controlled substances act.
Brown said police are seeking criminal charges against the people ejected for assault and violation of the controlled substances act.
Police also issued one citation for urinating in public and one for alcohol in the stadium.
In addition, medical personnel treated 182 people. Of those, 16 were transported to the hospital. Brown said she did not have a condition on any of the people who were taken to the hospital.
Saturday's announced attendance was 113,065.
