Mankato’s Drunk Problem 27 Sep 12

Officials continue to examine the growing problem of alcohol consumption in downtown Mankato. Law enforcement personnel say that too many people are getting drunk and causing trouble. Mankato police have met with bar owners to talk about the problem of serving alcohol to people who have already had too much. Police reportedly want more cooperation, especially with MSU homecoming this week. About 40% of those people taken to detox in the last month have been students.
