EUGENE, Ore.  -- After a few weeks of what they call "out-of¡control" behavior around the University of Oregon, Eugene police warn that they're going to be on party patrol this weekend.

Last Friday and Saturday, police arrested 29 people, including a 20-year-old student they said had used LSD and was naked and destroying property.

Spokeswoman Melinda McLaughlin says police hope that the warning will persuade partygoers to be less rowdy.

The Register-Guard reports the party patrols focus on alcohol related offenses such as minor in possession, furnishing alcohol to a minor, open container and prohibited noise. Police plan also to enforce the city's new social host ordinance.

It targets hosts and organizers of unruly gatherings and sets a minimum $375 fine.
