Mission Bay Park Keg Ban Supported

From Staff and Wire Reports

Beer kegs would be banned from San Diego beaches and Mission Bay Park under a measure unanimously approved by a City Council committee.

Violators could be fined as much as $250 per keg or alcohol container of more than 3 gallons under the ban, Deputy City Atty. Simon Silva said.

More than a dozen people said the ban is needed to prevent situations like a near-riot that occurred in a Pacific Beach neighborhood last July 4.
