Student Arrests Hit 900 at Spring Break Mecca

United Press International

Frolicking youths are being arrested at a rate of two an hour to set an all-time record of more than 900 arrests with the traditional spring break from college only half over, police said Thursday.

Authorities had estimated that 400,000 students would cram this mecca for vacationing collegians during the six-week break period that ends early in April.
