Police busy with Fourth of July arrests

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - San Diego police say they made six felony arrests, 41 misdemeanor arrests and issued 41 alcohol-related citations on the Fourth of July.

Another 36 misdemeanor citations were issued for offenses not involving alcohol; nine minors were found to be in possession of alcohol, and 197 motorists were cited for various violations from 7 a.m. Tuesday through 11 p.m. Wednesday, San Diego police Capt. Brian Ahearn said.

Fifty-seven parking tickets were issued, he said. He attributed the relatively orderly behavior to cooperation between citizen groups and public safety employees.

"City officials estimate approximately 409,000 people visited the beach and bay areas during the (holiday)," Ahearn said. "Despite the large crowds at the beaches, bays, parks and entertainment district, the holiday was a safe and enjoyable one for residents and visitors alike."
