PHOENIX -- A Tempe City Council member said recent violence and other trouble involving Arizona State University students demonstrates that the city should take steps to prevent and crack down on disorderly conduct.

Several students were injured in brawls with non-students at an apartment complex near campus last weekend. Two young women were seriously injured by burning alcohol from a bottle thrown into a bonfire in March.

Councilman Joel Navarro said Tempe should act quickly on proposed ordinances.

According to the Arizona Republic, the proposals include broadened authority for police to cite people at parties and making citations more serious if there are underage drinkers present.

Another would require an apartment complex to obtain a city permit if more than half of its residents belong to a fraternity or sorority.
