Miss Teen Arkansas 2010 arrested

Channel 5 news in Fayetteville says 70 to 80 students are arrested by U of A police for public intoxication every year, but few find themselves in the news because of it. Unfortunately for Megan Burgess, 19, she is the 2010 Miss Teen Arkansas, and her arrest has gotten plenty of coverage. Burgess, of Fouke, was found in the wee hours of Saturday sitting in snowy woods off Dickson Street near Duncan Avenue by police, who'd been alerted by a call from Humphreys Hall that she'd had run from the dorm. Police took her to jail on a charge of public intoxication; a trial has been set in February.

Wonder if public intoxication is a charge brought only by U of A police against students? Because if every public drunk in Fayetteville were arrested, the police could fill Bud Walton Arena every Saturday night.
