City Cracks Down on Underage Drinking at Sundown

Knoxville (WVLT) - A plan is now in place to help reduce underage drinking and maintain a family friendly atmosphere at sundown in the city each week.

Knoxville Police officers say they have noticed an increase in underage drinkers at the first two events this year.

Officers say so far, they have arrested ten people and cited 12 others for underage drinking.

From now on, anyone under 21 who pledges not to drink will receive a "Sober at Sundown" button or T-shirt and will be eligible for free concert tickets and other merchandise.
