The opening of the Tiki Bar last weekend, which attracts thousands of people each spring, yielded 13 arrests for disorderly conduct, no injuries and no destruction of property reports, according to Calvert County Sheriff Mike Evans.
“I think it went well,” Evans said of the opening weekend. “We always strive to not have to make any arrests, but we know it’s inevitable.”
Eleven people were arrested Friday, April 20, and two people were arrested Saturday, April 21, for disorderly conduct, Evans said. When there are more than 10,000 people attending the opening of a bar on a Friday afternoon, evening and night, Evans said, “11 arrests [aren’t] bad for that type of event.”
Evans said he personally did not receive complaints last weekend from any Solomons Island residents, there was no property destroyed to his knowledge, no citizens or deputies were injured and the few noise complaints that came in were handled efficiently.
