Police: Take caution at Northgate Friday

The Texas A&M University Police Department has precautionary advice for those celebrating Halloween on Friday: Be cautious when out and about.
“There will be some activities on campus, mainly at the University Center Complex or campus residence halls,” said Lt. Allan Baron, UPD public information officer. “However, most students who partake in Halloween activities will go to Northgate or attend festivities or parties in the community.”
Baron said because of this the number of alcohol violations usually increases on Halloween night.
“Students who choose to drink alcohol should drink in moderation and make responsible decisions such as having sober, trustworthy friends and a designated driver,” Baron said.
Victoria Iiams, international studies freshman, said the alcohol statistics about Halloween make her a little nervous, but more cautious.
“It definitely makes me more paranoid about road safety on Friday night,” Iiams said. “I think people should purposely be more aware of what’s going on wherever they are.”
UPD encourages the use of CARPOOL to avoid driving while intoxicated.
Costume regulations will also be in effect on campus.
Baron said fake knives, swords and guns should be made from cardboard or other flexible materials to avoid accidental injury and having them be mistaken for the real thing.
“We had an incident in 2011 where a rifle looked a little too real and caused a Code Maroon,” Baron said. “We don’t want any of that chaos again.”
