LA CROSSE, Wis. (AP) - The annual Oktoberfest celebration in La Crosse has ended without major incident, despite police reports of attendants flipping a car and damaging several others.

Local police reports say one car was flipped on its side and the widows of at least six others were smashed. The La Crosse Tribune (https://bit.ly/ZlnEew ) reports more than 130 people were cited for underage or public drinking, drunken driving and public urination. The police department is still processing hundreds of tickets.

At least five residences were ticketed for hosting parties, including one with more than 250 people in the backyard.

Tri-State Ambulance responded to 158 ambulance requests, more than double the amount of requests last year. Tri-State says about 60 percent of the calls from La Crosse were alcohol-related.
