Little 500 events begin in Bloomington this week, culminating on Saturday with the famous men’s cycling race. Little 500 weekend is also notoriously targeted by Indiana Excise Police who arrest college students by the hundreds for underage drinking and other-alcohol related offenses. The most common charges students may face are underage consumption (minor in possession of alcohol), furnishing alcoholic beverages to a minor, public intoxication, operating while intoxicated, possession of marijuana, possession of controlled substances, theft, and coversion. Charges as the result of an arrest over Little 500 weekend can impact a student's status with the University as well as future job prospects. Gibson Law Office has represented college students in Indiana University disciplinary proceedings as well as Monroe County courts in Bloomington.
