Report: No beer, wine problems at Minn. stadium


MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- A new report finds selling beer and wine on game days has not caused a rise in rowdy behavior at the University of Minnesota's TCF Bank Stadium.

The report shows that the number of alcohol-related incidents at the football stadium was lower in 2013 than 2010 -- two years before alcohol sales began.

University Vice President Pamela Wheelock says beer and wine sales have not been the problem that some might have expected.

The Star Tribune ( ) reports that university officials want to continue the sales after a two-year pilot project ends in July. The plan must be approved by the Minnesota Legislature.

The report found that 59 alcohol-related incidents were reported in the 2013 season, compared with 77 in 2010.
