Urban Beach Week Arrests Down
Posted May 24th, 2014 @ 4:37pm

Miami Beach Police say 83 arrest have been made through the first two days of Urban Beach Week.  Despite the high number, that is actually down from 141 arrests in the same period of time last year. 

Last year, 414 people were arrested during the course of the Memorial Day weekend hip-hop event.  Most of the arrests are for drug charges or misdemeanors. 

The weekend has come under much scrutiny and an even heavier police presence is patrolling the beach as a result.
