Tri-City HeraldJuly 29, 2013 

— The crowd at Columbia Park for Water Follies weekend was the “most well behaved crowd on record,” police said.

There were officers and deputies in the park from six agencies, including the Yakima Police Department, Kennewick police Sgt. Ken Lattin said. The Benton County Sheriff’s Office also helped patrol the Columbia River.

Police contacted 1,130 people in the park and arrested four of them. Two people were arrested for outstanding warrants, one person for driving under the influence and one person for criminal trespass.

The sheriff’s office assisted in arresting a boater Saturday for driving under the influence.

There were also nine citations issued for marijuana and alcohol related offenses, Lattin said.
