FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) - This year’s morning drinking festival in Flagstaff was relatively tame, prompting only 5 arrests compare to last year’s 41.

The Arizona Daily Sun reports (https://bit.ly/2dW5bym ) that new venues near Northern Arizona University’s campus helped keep participants in Tequila Sunrise closer to the school, thinning drunken crowds in downtown Flagstaff.

Arrests were made for underage drinking and urinating in public. All five arrests were made near the university.

The Flagstaff Fire Department CART Team responded to seven medical emergency calls while it was on Tequila Sunrise duty

Last year, the Flagstaff City Council questioned the event after so many arrests and complaints were made.
