Hotel cited for Tufts group party

Police accuse Westin Copley

Police have cited the Westin Copley Place Boston Hotel for violations stemming from a Tufts University function held at the hotel earlier this month in which some students drank excessively, ­urinated in the lobby, and were sent to area hospitals for treatment.

Boston police said in a statement Wednesday that hotel security refused to stop the party, which the school calls its annual Winter Bash, shortly after midnight Feb. 2 after officers “observed numerous individuals leaving the third floor ballroom, many of whom appeared extremely intoxicated due to alcohol consumption.”
