Public intoxication, disorderly conduct arrests usher in Picnic Day revelry

Davis police had made a number of arrests for public intoxication and disorderly conduct by early evening on Saturday, but it was too soon to tell how the Picnic Day revelry in Davis would compare to the unruly — and sometimes violent — behavior in previous years, according to Davis Police Lt. Paul Doroshov.

“It hasn’t been too bad,” he said, “but it’s too early to tell.”

Doroshov added that the crowds in downtown Davis and elsewhere on Saturday, while larger, were “more behaved and not as drunk” as crowds seen in the last few years in the afternoon and early evening of Picnic Day.

And while there had been no serious incidents by early evening, Doroshov said, there were several fights that had to be broken up by police.

For the last few years, the city of Davis has enacted a safety enhancement zone covering downtown and areas north of UC Davis along Anderson Road in order keep alcohol-fueled incidents to a minimum. Inside the heavily patrolled zones, police can give tickets for twice the usual fine for minors in possession, open containers, public urination, noise and smoking.

Since enacting the safety zones, the numbers of arrests and citations on Picnic Day weekend have dropped slowly, from 54 arrests and 207 citations in 2011 to 51 arrests and about 100 citations in 2012 and under 40 arrests and 83 citations last year.

Doroshov did not have any arrest or citation numbers available yet Saturday evening.
