78 Marquette students cited for underage drinking at downtown bar
MILWAUKEE -- Over 70 Marquette University students were cited with underage drinking tickets after police raided Victor's Nightclub located in downtown Milwaukee. The raid took place at 11:30 p.m. on April 11th.
On their website Victor's Nightclub advertises it as college, Thursday's they offer free pizza and no cover with a college or military ID.
Milwaukee police say they went to the bar on a tip about underage drinking. 78 college students were cited with underage drinking tickets. In their statement they said six of those cited were not students at Marquette University.
Most of the college students were cooperative with police and provided officers with their fake identification.
On campus reaction was mixed, although no one was surprised. Many students were talking about it.
"People were a little upset about it and they thought why are you busting people for just underage drinking that's not gonna make a difference, there was just a shooting at 20th and Cylbourne," said Rebecca Lambert.
Paul Tran said his friend was caught up in the bust.
"I heard that some people got put in handcuffs and the back of cars and stuff like that, they got pretty substantial tickets, like $900," said Tran.
Marquette University Marketing and Public Relations Department Brian Dorrington tells CBS 58 all students will face a student conduct review. Dorrington wouldn't say what kinds of discipline the school would give each student.
