The number of University of Iowa students arrested or ticketed was up last year as the number of female students getting in trouble continued to grow.

University officials report 1,369 arrests or citations were issued to students last school year, up from 1,313 the previous year and 1,072 in 2009-2010.

During last school year, 508 female students were arrested or ticketed by either university or Iowa City police, up significantly from the 324 female students in trouble during the 2009-2010 year.

The majority of the arrests or citations were related to alcohol. For instance, 441 students were arrested or ticketed on suspicion of public intoxication last school year and 67 were arrested on suspicion of drunken driving.
