Minor Consuming Issues at NDSU Tailgating Events

Posted: Updated:

FARGO, N.D. – The Fargo Police Department is sending out a reminder before Saturday's NDSU Bison Football game. They are letting tailgaters know police will be out looking for minors consuming alcohol, and the penalties are stiff if minors are caught.

The Fargo Municipal Code prohibits anyone under the age of 21 from purchasing, possessing or consuming alcoholic beverages within the city limits of Fargo. Any minor found in possession or having consumed alcohol must appear in court and may receive a maximum penalty of thirty days imprisonment, a fine of $1,500, or both. Fargo Police also want to remind minors they may receive additional sanctions from any universities or colleges they attend.

NDSU Bison Football has hosted two home football games thus far in 2013. Fargo Police issued nine citations on September 7th and 13 citations on September 21st for underage drinking within the area of the FargoDome.

NDSU has a Football Tailgating Policy which states "under no circumstances shall persons under 21 years of age have possession of alcoholic beverages in the tailgating areas.
