BEAVERCREEK, Ohio (WDTN) – Beavercreek Police say they used to deal with excessive partying on Cinco De Mayo.
The department is commending area bars for creating a safer environment on what was once an extra busy night for police.
Fox and Hound near Wright State University is known for its Tuesday night celebrations. However, because it’s also also Cinco de Mayo the pub is expecting about 300 people.
“Cinco De Mayo is always a big night, here especially this year its on two dollar Tuesdays” said Daniel Dedoncker, Fox and Hound manager.
Beavercreek Police Captain Eric Grile says the day used to call for extra police attention, but in the past few years things have calmed down.
“Many years ago Cinco De Mayo and may daze in conjunction with wright state university, it used to generate a lot of activity for law enforcement, we’ve seen that trend decline” said Captain Eric Grile, Beavercreek Police Department.
We searched police records for the night of Cinco De Mayo for the past two years and found no OVI citations. Captain Grile gives credit to many area bars being more responsible when serving patrons.
“Fox and the hound is one that we consider to be well managed and well-responsible establishment – its one of many, we have several liquor permits across the city, we have little problem with the majority because they’re responsibly managed” said Captain Grile.
