A sweep of the Sleep Train Amphitheatre on Friday netted 41 alcohol-related arrests for Chula Vista police.
Officers conducted the operation during a concert by country singer Luke Bryan, canvasing the theater’s parking lots on the prowl for underage drinkers. They came up with 39 arrests of minors age 17-20 and two other arrests of adults furnishing alcohol to minors.
The penalty for furnishing alcohol to minors is a minimum of $1,000 and 24 hours of community service. A minor in possession of alcohol faces a $250 fine and 24 hours of community service. Both are considered misdemeanors and all those arrested were released with citations.
According to the Chula Vista Police Department, the operation was funded by the California Alcoholic Beverage Control through the department's Grant Assistance Program.
