Police say no arrests were made on St. Patrick’s Day

St. Patrick’s Day crowds in Aspen behaved themselves and police did not make even one arrest during the Thursday holiday, Assistant Chief Bill Linn said Friday.

“It’s usually pretty busy,” Linn said, adding that he was surprised by the lack of arrests. “I wouldn’t have put money on (having no arrests).”

In fact, a sergeant on duty Thursday night called it an “amazingly civilized St. Patrick’s Day,” Linn said.

Linn, however, wasn’t complaining about the quiet night.

“We like it when everybody’s calm,” he said. “It’s usually one of those nights people says is ‘amateur night.’”

The Pitkin County Sheriff’s Office also logged no arrests Thursday night, said Deputy Alex Burchetta, director of operations.
