Drinking during street hockey nets penalties

Greater Trail On The Beat

A game of road hockey turned street party left a number of youth with tickets for drinking last week in downtown Rossland.

About 100 teens gathered on the corner of Columbia Avenue and Washington Street last Tuesday night to watch from the sidelines or partake in some pavement puck action.

Several violation tickets were issued to minors for possession of liquor while some alcohol found in a backpack was dumped around 10:30 p.m.
