Pismo Beach police arrest 17 at annual beach party
April 2, 2013
The arrests ranged from public intoxication to possession of alcohol on the beach.
In addition to poor weather and increased enforcement, the Cal Poly class schedule may have helped limit the size of the 2013 edition of the annual unsanctioned affair which was smaller than previous years. Cesar Chavez Day fell on the Monday following spring break. The event also fell during Cuesta College’s spring break.
The Pismo Beach Police Department says it is making similar plans to patrol another unsanctioned event coming up on April 20, a counterculture marijuana holiday. The department says it will allow “zero tolerance” for alcohol and substance related crimes.
