(Amherst, MA)  —  Most of those arrested at the Blarney Blowout were not UMass students.  That’s according to the “Springfield Republican.”  A cross-check of records shows out of the dozens arrested on Saturday, only 20 were students at the University.  Those busted at the day-long drunken riot in Amherst are being arraigned in stages this week at Belchertown District Court.
