FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky officials say a crackdown on underage drinking has resulted in dozens of citations being handed out.
The Kentucky Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control's "Cops in Shops" program has given 154 alcohol-related citations since the effort started Aug. 29.
A total of 94 underage possession citations have been issued. Other charges include possession of a forged instrument and assisting a minor to purchase alcohol.
ABC says it has also stepped up its presence at tailgating events to reduce illegal alcohol use.
