WILLIMANTIC, Conn. (WTNH) — Willimantic police arrested eight people on breach of peace charges during the Spring Weekend festivities at Eastern Connecticut State University.

Police tell News 8 that not all the arrests were ECSU students, but their ages all ranged from 19-24 years old.

Among the people arrested were Kevin Morton, 19, of Orange, Richard Altieri, 21, of Wallingford, Jordan Blanco, 21, of New Milford, William Jack, 21, of Willimantic, Andrew Robinson, 21, of Willimantic, Comendul Bennet, 21, Wallingford, Liam Ferguson, 22, of Newtown, and Christopher Paquette, 24, of Willimantic.

City police worked with ECSU students to keep things under control for the big party weekend, which according to officials, did not get completely out of hand.

“We are very pleased with how the weekend turned out. The fireworks display at the ECSU ball field was well received by all including city residents who were on hand to view them. The bar crawl Saturday night also went smoothly with a couple of hundred students participating. City police would like to thank all of the students for their fine behavior and to wish the out-going seniors all of the best with the next chapter in the lives.” Cpl. Stanley Parizo, Jr. said.
