Walton County is home to Scenic Highway 30A. It's a quieter stretch of beach usually, with communities like Seaside and Rosemary Beach. But Spring Break is still a thing; and even if it's a little less rowdy, the Walton County Sheriff's Department still arrested plenty of college students -- and even kids in high school. By March 27th, kids from more than 20 high schools had been arrested.

Now that Spring Break is winding down, the sheriff's office tweeted a list of the Top 10 schools for arrests. It's a list you don't want your school to make, especially if yours is a high school. And yet, three high schools made the list. With 5 arrests, Fairhope High School tied the University of North Georgia at #9 in arrests.
The worst offenders were from Mississippi State, where 12 arrests pushed the school up to #1.
I'd love to see this data for other counties closer to home.
