Police Say St. Charles Suffering From Popularity

February 12, 2006 - Posted at 12:28 p.m. CST

ST. CHARLES, Mo. (AP) _ St. Charles police say being a hot night

spot for young people is causing the city problems.

In the last six months, more than 100 people have been arrested

on misdemeanor charges ranging from disturbing the peace to

assaulting an officer, many of them on Main Street.

Police Chief Tim Swope says he's sent more officers to the area

to deal with the problem.

With ten bars in the area, at night, North Main Street changes

from a quiet, historical shopping and arts district to a bar

hopper's haven.

Swope says he's glad the area's thriving, but police have to

make sure that everyone visiting the area feels secure.

Mayor Patti York said she and other city officials would meet

this week to discuss how the city gives out and monitors liquor and

business licenses.
