Police warn CU, CSU students to behave at game

DENVER — The names of students caught sipping suds at the annual Rocky Mountain Showdown could be mud at their respective schools.

Authorities are warning that students caught with alcohol at the University of Colorado-Colorado State University game Saturday could be ticketed, arrested or taken to detox. Denver police say they’ll also share violators’ names with the two schools and those students could also face administrative sanctions.

The game is at Invesco Field, where the Denver Broncos NFL team plays.

Police ejected about 75 people from last year’s game, played at CU-Boulder’s Folsom Field. At least 15 people were taken to a detox center.

Denver police used tear gas and Mace on unruly fans at the 1999 game. Some fans accused police of overreacting.
