RENO, Nev. (AP) — Authorities say 15 people were arrested during the Santa Crawl at pubs in downtown Reno, down from 17 arrests during the 2014 event.

The city of Reno said in a press release that six citations for unlicensed activity will be issued Monday.

It also said two bars were dangerously over capacity during the Saturday event, causing the fire department to step in and stop the sale of alcohol until the crowd thinned out.

Reno Police Chief Jason Soto said in the release that the event was a successful cooperation between police, local businesses, the event promoter and Reno citizens.
