SEE IF YOU CAN SPOT THE CRIMINAL IOWA FANS DRINKING BEER IN THE ABOVE PHOTO
Economic times are tough. Especially for cash strapped local governments. One solution-soak the fans of your local college football team. Police in Iowa City nailed football fans with 145 open container violations under their new “Think Before You Drink” campaign over the weekend.
Cynics point out that this is just a vehicle to raise revenue for the city. Previously, the community had fully endorsed University of Iowa tailgating activities including the “Magic Bus” promotion. However, the city just raised the open container fine to $124. That would mean they brought in nearly $18,000 in revenue from booze drinking fans over the weekend.
