Alcohol use at Edina High School football game sparks new rules


Administrators set some sobering new rules for Edina High School football games after last week's homecoming game when they discovered evidence of alcohol consumption. FOX 9 reports students will no longer be allowed to bring in backpacks or liquids of any kind, and an increased security presence in the student section will enforce the new policy.

In a letter to parents, school district officials said they discovered empty beer cans and liquor-tainted plastic bottles , the Star Tribune reports. Security personnel said they noticed the alcohol consumption during the game, too.

KARE 11 reports the policies will take effect at Friday's home game against Eden Prarie.
