Sheriff's Deputies say they will not tolerate underage drinking, or those over the age of 21 being publicly intoxicated, at high school football games.
They say even a little alcohol can quickly turn a fun night into a dangerous situation:
"People can't handle alcohol, especially when you have an underage consumption going on...What can start out as a small scuffle turns into a large riot."
TCSO says anyone caught drinking over the age of 17, but under the age of 21, will be arrested and tried as an adult.
They say their goal is to keep the football game environment safe and fun for high school-aged students and their families.
