UW-Madison police report increase in stadium ejections, underage drinking citations Saturday

The UW-Madison Police Department saw a significant increase in the total number of ejections from Camp Randall Stadium at this week’s home game against Nebraska compared to the last home game against Maryland, according to a UWPD report.

This week there were a total of 70 ejections compared to 42 during the game against Maryland.

In addition, the matchup against Nebraska resulted in a wider range of ejection reasons not seen at the last game, including possession of drug paraphernalia, throwing hard objects and depositing human waste.

There was also a slight increase in underage drinking citations, with UWPD issuing 25 citations this weekend compared to 21 at the Maryland game.

UWPD also cited an individual for possession of marijuana.

The highest preliminary breath sample was reported at .278 BAC.

The game saw nine paramedic calls, with one conveyance and six people taken to detox.
