MUNCIE, Ind. (AP) — Indiana State Excise Police says a weekend crackdown in Muncie resulted in 71 arrests, mostly on alcohol-related charges.

They say they arrested 24 people Saturday on 39 charges including resisting law enforcement, illegal possession of alcohol, furnishing alcohol to a minor, possession of a false ID and false statement of age.

That followed the Friday arrests of 47 people on 49 charges, including illegal possession of alcohol, false statement of age and resisting law enforcement. Four adults were charged with furnishing alcohol to minors.

The arrests came the weekend before Monday’s start of fall classes at Ball State University in Muncie.

For fellow Gary native CJ Williams, being a Michael Jackson tribute artist is not about mimicking the spins and splits. It's about paying homage to the King of Pop.  Williams, who took third place at a recent talent contest in Gary coinciding with the anniversary of Jackson's birthday, has spent 12 years as an impersonator.  He has performed in Los Angeles, Philadelphia and Ohio and has plans to take his show farther.  (AP Photo/The Times, Jonathan Miano )  MANDATORY CREDIT; CHICAGO LOCALS OUT;  GARY OUT

Hood lives with three dumped dogs in a dilapidated 1982 Chevrolet Rockwood recreational vehicle that’s traveled 81,000 miles and has an expired 2008 license plate on the back.  That RV, Hood’s home, may have finally found a permanent parking space thanks to kindness bestowed upon him by strangers , including a local accountant, a grocery store owner and a property owner and several county officials who asked to go unnamed who were intent on making sure the man can live his simple life without fear of being run off.
