Eight Arrests During First Night of UConn Spring Weekend

It was a subdued start to Spring Weekend at UConn, the annual party before the start of finals.

Eight criminal arrests were made through 3:00 this morning on the first night of Spring Weekend.   Five suspects had no ties to the school

Those arrested face a variety of charges from possession of marijuana to weapons violations.  UConn Police also issued 35 infractions and written warnings for motor vehicles.

Its part of a crackdown the school instituted in the wake a student’s death last year.  20-year old Jafar Karzoun was killed last April during a fight in an off-campus parking lot.

The university sent out emails two weeks ago informing students that no overnight dorm visits would be allowed and non-students would not be allowed at off-campus apartments, the site of raucous parties in the past.
