Fans were not on their best behavior last Saturday at two Big Ten games.
In Madison, 18 people were arrested and 34 were ejected from Camp Randall Stadium during Wisconsin's game against Purdue, according to University police. Fifteen citations and ejections were for underage drinking.
University police were also busy in Iowa City, where 13 people were arrested during the Michigan-Iowa game. Another 36 were cited for open container in public and three were cited for public urination.
But the level of intoxication among some of the arrested was staggering.
Blain Christopher Anderson of Midland, Mich., was very unsteady on his feet as he tried to enter Kinnick Stadium, according to police. He acknowledged drinking and blew a .321 blood-alcohol content.
Raider safety Stacey Toran had a blood-alcohol level of .32 when in died in an auto accident in August 1989.
"That's getting almost to the unconscious level ... to get to the .32 level, that would be approximately 16 drinks" within an hour, UCLA professor Ernest Noble told the L.A. Times in a report on Toran's death.
Anderson was not alone. Blood-alcohol levels of four others who were arrested: .272, .266, .254 and .230.
