Frostburg police busy during, after Shamrock Shuffle - 03/12

FROSTBURG — Frostburg police, assisted by officers from the Allegany County Sheriff’s Department, Maryland State Police and Frostburg State University responded to 92 calls during the 24-hour period that included the first Shamrock Shuffle on Saturday.

“It was great to see Frostburg come alive again,” Chief Royce Douty said in a news release. “Most of the local people and FSU students seemed to be having a great time and acted very responsibly. It seemed to be a great turnout for the event.”

Police responded to: an assault, 11 traffic stops, a trespassing, 11 open container violations, eight disorderly conducts, 11 underage drinking violations, three parking violations, one littering, one controlled dangerous substance complaint, three public urinations, one firearm complaint, one noise problem, one indecent exposure, two criminal disorderlies and failures to obey.

Douty said the expanded police presence kept situations from escalating.

“(Sunday) morning when I came to work there were numerous vehicles parked on Main Street and business parking lots,” Douty wrote. “This showed that most of the people that had a little too much alcohol used good judgment to leave their vehicles parked and found other transportation home.”

Douty said that sometime early Sunday nine vehicles on Washington Street between Bowery and Grant were hit with thrown eggs.

Information about that or other incidents may be provided to police at 301-689-3000.
