PHOENIX -- School is back in session and, apparently, so is arrest season.
According to the Huffington Post, 1,367 people have been arrested near Arizona State University's campus over the past three weekends.
A majority of the arrests occurred in a two-mile area around ASU, the State Press reports.
The first weekend (Aug. 16-18) brought 371 arrests, the second (Aug. 23-25) included 486 arrests, and the final weekend (Aug. 30-Sept. 1) rallied with 510 arrests.
Over 500 of those arrests were on charges of underage alcohol possession or consumption. Police also responded to about 130 calls concerning loud parties.
In total, police have made 5,815 contacts and issued 3,788 citations.
