‘Passing up’ girls in stadium draws legal
attention

Sept. 27, 1979 — City Attorney Bruce Laidlaw and Washtenaw
County Prosecutor William Delhey put forward the possibility that
girls “passed up” the stands during football games
could press assault charges against those passing them up.
“Anytime someone is picked up and thrown or tossed around, it
would constitute an assault,” Laidlaw said.

Delhey cautioned that finding the responsible individual could
be difficult and not all legal actions would be successful.
“If the girl is consenting and doesn’t object (to being
passed up), it’s not a crime,” he said.
