ABC Agents Target Under-Age Drinking at Kenny Chesney Concert Thirty-eight 17-20 year-olds cited for possession of alcohol

CABCACHULA VISTA-  On August 4, 2016 California  Alcoholic Beverage Control agents teamed up with the Chula Vista Police Department to conduct an enforcement operation at the Sleep Train Amphitheatre during the Kenny Chesney concert. During the concert, agents and officers detained 38 people under the age of 21 for being in possession of alcohol.   Most of the minors were contacted in the parking lots outside the amphitheater and ranged in age from 17 to 20-years-old.

"California Alcoholic Beverage Control agents have witnessed first-hand the sometimes deadly consequences of under-age drinking and all that's associated with it," said California Statewide Law Enforcement Association President Alan Barcelona.  "Working to keep alcohol out of the hands of teenagers and 20-year-olds is working to keep everyone safe - be it at concerts, large venues, or out on our highways."

All of those detained were released with a misdemeanor citation or released to their parent/guardian with a pending court date.  Minors who are convicted of possessing alcohol face a minimum $250 fine and 24 hours of community service.

This enforcement program is intended to reduce the availability of alcohol to minors. Statistics show under-age drinking can led to drunken driving collisions, and risky and/or criminal behavior.
