Halloween Arrests Net 400

A weekend of Halloween celebrations popular with college students resulted in more than 400 arrests.

Madison, WI -- Mayor Dave Cieslewicz is suggesting canceling the annual gathering.

The downtown party near the University of Wisconsin-Madison attracts college students from across the Midwest, and has turned chaotic in the past.

Police used officers on horseback early Sunday to move chanting and beverage-tossing revelers off State Street, a mile-long stretch of bars, restaurants and shops.

The pepper spray was used after cups filled with beverages and ice were thrown at officers.

Most arrests were for alcohol-related offenses, including underage drinking.

Elsewhere, police in Athens, Ohio, home of Ohio University, made 95 arrests at a Saturday night Halloween block party.
