CAMDEN, S.C. (AP/WIS) - The head law enforcement officer at the Carolina Cup said nearly 250 people were charged at the annual steeplechase races Saturday.
Camden Police Chief Joseph Floyd said 242 people were either arrested or cited during the event, a majority of those charges are for under aged drinking.
Last year, authorities arrested 225 people at the Carolina Cup, with most of the arrests occurring in College Park.
Chief Floyd said there were no major incidents. He said he will have a more detailed breakdown of the charges early this week.
Authorities assigned 135 officers to help patrol the Carolina Cup horse races.
Floyd said most officers were assigned to the College Park section, where college students gather. Many of the officers were specially trained to deal with college students and alcohol violations.
Camden set aside $25,000 to pay for overtime for the extra officers, who came from 17 agencies across the state. Kershaw County deputies were not inside the cup, but Sheriff Jim Matthews said they were outside, looking for drunk drivers.
