IN Excise Cites 77 on 133 Charges at IMS

Indiana State Excise Police arrested or cited 57 minors, 14 adults, and six juveniles on 133 charges while working enforcement patrols over the weekend at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

Excise officers issued 61 summonses for illegal possession or consumption of an alcoholic beverage. Other charges included possession of false identification and misdemeanor marijuana possession charges.

Superintendent Matt Strittmatter said, "Our objective during race weekends and other large events across the state is to help ensure that everyone attending has a safe environment in which to enjoy the festivities. The combination of alcohol and other intoxicating substances often bring out the worst behavior in people, which can compromise their safety and the safety of others.”

The arrests and citations happened Friday and Saturday during the concert festivities. No arrests were made on race day.
