Second quiet New Year’s Eve in a row at Stateline


With a crowd estimated at 1,500-2,000 people, Stateline experienced a second relatively quiet New Year’s Eve in a row.

Douglas County Sheriff’s deputies arrested 14 people over the entire weekend, with a half-dozen of those at Lake Tahoe.

At Stateline there were two arrests for driving under the influence.

Eight arrests were made in Carson Valley, including one DUI and three for possession of drugs.

“I would like to commend the Stateline Casinos for providing a safe environment for celebrants while still giving them a place to embrace the New Year’s Eve celebrations,” Sheriff Dan Coverley said. “From our observations, this was another successful event weekend.”

Coverley reported the county experienced another year with fewer calls for service as compared to previous years.

“I want to thank my personnel for their dedication to our community and the safety of our visitors and residents,” he said. “I would also like to thank Douglas County 911 Emergency Communications as well as all the local law enforcement agencies and fire departments for a collaborative effort to ensure the public’s safety.”
