Charlotte-Mecklenberg Police today released statistics showing a downward trend in arrests at this year’s CIAA Tournament when compared to last year’s numbers. 21 people were arrested over the course of the week, with most in connection to alcohol and fighting.
The department reported 31 arrests last year during CIAA tournament week. Official attendance numbers have not yet been released, but the tournament annually attracts more than 200,000 people to the Charlotte uptown area.
It’s a good bet that most of those arrests probably were made shortly after this video was shot.
