MSU Police Reminder: Munn Field Is Alcohol-Free Zone

Posted: Updated:

EAST LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) - In preparation for Michigan State University's second football game of the season, campus police want to remind fans of some simple rules.

MSU Sergeants Florene McGlothian-Taylor says it's really rather simple. "It's not an issue that people can't see it," Sgt. Taylor said.

Tailgaters are simply ignoring the facts. Munn Field is an alcohol-free zone and on the first game of the 2013 season, Police issued 32 tickets for drinking there.

"32 is a high number," Sgt. Taylor said. So he says you can't count on more officers patrolling the area Saturday.

"Munn Field has been alcohol-free now for four years, so it's been long enough for people to realize that they shouldn't be drinking in the area."

And for those that choose to tailgate there on game day, they will given a slip of paper reminding them that it's their choice to tailgate there and if they consume alcohol they will be given a ticket.

"There are many other areas people can park, enjoy themselves, as long as they're of age. We expect a lot of people, we expect people to enjoy themselves, just abide by the rules," Sgt. Taylor said.

Sergeant Taylor says you can follow the rules or expect to be going home with a ticket.
