Police in Princeton, N.J. are cracking down on alumni who drink and drive at college reunions, reports the Trenton Times. They recently arrested seven alums, including two corporate vice presidents, two managing directors, a partner at a law firm, and two men in their 70s in town for their 50th reunion. The reunion weekend draws up to 20,000 people to the campus. With all the partying, and the odds are that some will end up in handcuffs after getting behind the wheel impaired. “We’re trying to keep the streets safe and the drunk drivers off the road,” said police spokesman Lt. David Dudeck.
Teresa Stevens of the New Jersey Mothers Against Drunk Driving said, “What a shame it would have been to have a wonderful day at your college reunion and die on the way home.” Said an arrested alum: “If they were patrolling around the eating clubs and the reunion tents, and looking for guys (leaving), they weren’t going to have any trouble (making arrests).”
