County Tries to Tame Deltopia


Hoping to tame this year’s Isla Vista Deltopia party — and prevent a riot akin to last year’s — the Board of Supervisors extended a music ordinance used during Halloween to the first two weekends in April, when the annual street bash is expected to take place. The Sheriff’s Office — citing last year’s 470 arrests and 50 ambulance trips — suggested the change, stating that both advertised and spontaneous concerts helped draw the 25,000 partiers. Those who violate the ordinance would be issued a citation similar to a traffic ticket.
