The Morgantown Police Department responded to nine “loud parties” or possible gatherings Friday through Sunday.
That’s according to Morgantown Communications Director Andrew Stacy who said most of those were in the Sunnyside area and all except one of them received an initial warning.
“For the most part, officers did not have to return after the initial response,” Stacy said.
The number of parties fell off greatly after Sept. 11, he said.
That was the day an order from Interim City Manager Emily Muzzarelli banning parties and social gatherings in some parts of the city went into effect. The order targets neighborhoods with a high student population, including Sunnyside.
The MPD issued 12 underage citations, and four open container citations over the weekend, according to Stacy.
Early on Saturday morning, there was a large party incident on Walnut Street, Stacy said.
The MPD identified around 17 people and are working with West Virginia University to identify those involved, he said.
Interim Police Chief Eric Powell said the MPD had 427 calls for service on Saturday but not all of them were related to gameday activities, according to Stacy.
“He said that overall it went pretty well and it was fairly quiet for a gameday weekend,” Stacy said.
