Rash Of Public Urination Arrests In Oswego

There's been a crackdown on what Oswego Police call quality of life issues in town.

City Police say they made a weekend sweep through town, prompted by complaints and even the police eyewitnessing bad behavior.

There were five arrests alone for public urination. Oswego Police say public urination becomes a big problem on the weekends once classes resume at SUNY Oswego for the fall semester. Police Captain David Lizotte told 570 WSYR that some violators have had so much to drink they don't care where they relieve themselves. It can sometimes be out in the middle of the street or even in a private driveway.

The other big offense that police handed out a half dozen citations for is for violating the city's noise ordinance. City police say that not only involves loud music, but there were several arrests for walking through residential neighborhoods screaming and shouting in the middle of the night.

Oswego Police say they also issued citations for Disorderly Conduct and violations of the city's open container laws.
