Drinking Game Involves Keene City Council
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.
