The city council of Keene, N.H., was holding a meeting to discuss the local law that bans carrying an open alcohol container. The discussion was interrupted by several people in the audience playing a drinking game. When there was a unanimous vote, for example, participants took a swig from a container labeled "not a beer."

STEVE INSKEEP, host:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep.

The city council of Keene, New Hampshire discussed a measure on drinking. They had a meeting to discuss the local law that bans carrying an open container of alcohol. Their discussion was interrupted by several people in the audience who were playing a drinking game. They had to be arrested because when there was a call to order, when everyone stood or when there was a unanimous vote, participants took a swig from containers that they were carrying, including some that were labeled - not a beer.

It's MORNING EDITION.
