Chico Police say there were minimal problems over the St. Patrick's Day weekend. Police say that was due to Chico State and Butte College aligning their spring break this week. The department did have extra staff downtown and around the south campus area on Saturday.
According to a Chico Police Department press release, there were a total of 27 arrests. Of those 10 included public intoxication, 7 for violence, 4 warrant arrests, 3 DUI arrests, 1 arrest for theft, one for drug possession, and one for trespassing.
