CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -

Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police say their objective for the CIAA Tournament was to maintain a safe environment.

The Charlotte Fire Department, Medic, Mecklenburg County Sheriff's Office and other agencies say their plan was successful.

CIAA organizers estimate more than 100,000 people visited uptown for tournament-related events.

During the three-day period from February 28 until March 3, CMPD reports no major incidents related to CIAA were reported. 21 adults were arrested. That's down from 31 arrests last year.

Those arrests were mostly for alcohol-related charges, larceny, trespassing, public affray (fighting), and strong arm robbery.
