FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - Fort Worth police say they’re going to start arresting rowdy intoxicated off-campus partygoers from Texas Christian University because warnings from officers aren’t working.

Police are responding to complaints from residents of the neighborhoods near the school who have endured weeks of loud noise, littering and traffic problems that began with the start of school in August and that are worse than previous years.

Authorities tell the Fort Worth Star-Telegram (https://bit.ly/1VNNUEc ) that on one weekend night last month, all 15 patrol cars from a division of the police department were devoted to party complaints near TCU.

Some of the parties draw more than 100 people and the traffic clogs neighborhood streets. Police also say they’ll be writing more parking tickets.

School officials say they’re working with the police.
