Alcohol and Crime

Alcohol-involved violent incidents known to law enforcement occurring in a residence or home were far more common on Saturdays and Sundays; this was not true for other violent incidents

  • Both alcohol-involved and other violent incidents known to law enforcement that occurred in a bar, nightclub, or restaurant were more likely to take place on a Saturday or Sunday than on other days during the week.
  • The proportion of alcohol-involved violent incidents that occurred in bars peaked on weekends.
