Skinful Halloween generates fewer arrests, citations this year, according to authorities

Citations and arrests were down this year compared with last year during the annual Skinful Halloween event Saturday at The Brick House Kitchen on James Island.

Charleston County sheriff’s Maj. Jim Brady said there were four written warnings for equipment violations during traffic enforcement in the area of the event. Traffic and enforcement deputies were out in the area on Folly Road from 8 p.m. to 4 a.m.

One person was charged with disorderly conduct and trespass after notice, according to authorities.

During last year’s party, there were 58 citations issued for traffic offenses, five DUI charges, one disorderly conduct arrest and five alcohol-related charges, such as open container, according to sheriff’s officials.

The party has received criticism through the years. This year, party organizers attempted to move the event from The Brick House, but after bouncing around from venue to venue, the party eventually landed back at The Brick House and organizers adjusted their plans to adhere to the area’s 11 p.m. noise ordinance.
