45 arrested along Rose Parade route

Police arrested 45 people along the 122 Tournament of Roses Parade route late Friday and early Saturday, officials said.
The 45 people arrested between 5 p.m. Friday and 5 a.m. Saturday were all adults, Pasadena police spokeswoman Janet Pope Givens said. The number of arrests was three higher than last year.
Thirty-nine of the arrests were for public intoxications, three were for driving without a license, one was for interfering with a police officer, one was for battery and one was for municipal code violation, Givens said.
“Overall, given the number of people, the length of time and the typical revelry that is associated with New Year’s celebrations, we are pleased that the numbers are so low.
In order to suppress crime along the route, she added, police recruited mobile home and recreational vehicle operators who set up “temporary neighborhoods” along the parade route to participate in a sort of temporary neighborhood watch program.
“We believe that the community’s willingness to be involved is a contributing factor in keeping arrest numbers low,” Givens said.
