TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. (AP) - Authorities say they racked up nearly 180 citations and arrests during Fourth of July festivities that drew an estimated 10,000 people on and around Torch Lake in northern Michigan.

Officers from multiple agencies kept watch on the rowdy crowd July 3 and 4. The Kalkaska County Sheriff’s Office says infractions that officers dealt with included underage drinking, illegal parking, operating while intoxicated and disorderly conduct.

Kalkaska County Sheriff Abe DeVol tells the Traverse City Record-Eagle (https://bit.ly/1f9MRQy ) that people threw garbage “everywhere,” including in the lake.

Authorities also responded to 62 medical calls in the area over the weekend.
