17 people cited so far for Mifflin Street Block Party, Madison police say

Monitoring crowd size

Madison police monitor the crowd size of a backyard gathering at the Mifflin Street Block Party.

The Madison Police Department reported Tuesday that 13 additional people were cited Saturday during the Mifflin Street Block Party, bringing the total number of citations at the event up to 17. 

Madison police are continuing to investigate three property damage complaints, including at least two incidents in which partygoers stomped atop cars and smashed the vehicles' windshields

Police spokesperson Gracia Rodriguez had initially reported only four citations for violating a glass free zone, open intoxicants in the street and disorderly conduct. But she said the department updated its records Tuesday to include the additional 13 people who were cited and released on Saturday. 

The police department is facing criticism for not doing more to prevent property damage during the alcohol-fueled affair.
