Austin assistant police chief Raul Munguia says Sixth Street the first night after Texas Relays was pretty quiet. "No major incidents. We did have one arrest for fighting which is ...you know it's not unexpected. Overall, it was a very easy going evening," Munguia said. He says they have put out more officers and even water barricades to prevent stampeding, which he says is a problem in Austin. But you have to have people shoulder to shoulder for a stampede to happen and it wasn't like that last night. But tonight is the night when police expect the crowd to get that big again. We start getting a lot of kids that are coming into town just to partake in the festivities at night and that crowd that shows up on Sixth Street, it grows even bigger than what we see at the Relays," he said. Rainey Sternes and Vins Miller from Desoto were in town for the Relays to cheer on Rainey's little brother. He says you won't see Desoto students getting into trouble.
