Casper Partied So Hard In 1918, 22 People Ended Up in Jail
Some things just don't change. According to the Wyoming State Historical Society, on this day in 1918, 22 people were arrested in Casper, allegedly due to St. Patrick's Day celebrations getting out of hand.
Casper was named the city in Wyoming with the craziest St. Paddy's Day parties. Each year, Casper hosts a party at David Street Station, complete with green beer and plenty of entertainment. This year, however, the all St. Patrick's Day Festivities, even those in Ireland, took a hit due to the practice of social distancing.
Casper's overall crime rate is just slightly above the country's average of 26%, sitting at 27%, however, with the Wyoming crime rate sitting at only 19%, it's just a littttle higher than the rest of the Cowboy State. No word on how many people were arrested in Casper for 2019.
However, hopefully in the last 100 years, the rate of arrests has abated a little bit. Though, with Casper... who knows?
