More details on PSU tailgate party related to low flying helicopter

Local News

University Park, Pa- WTAJ has new details on some of the activities that occurred prior to a State Police helicopter flying too low at a tailgating crowd during the Ohio State-Penn State game two weeks ago.

Officers from the Bureau of Liquor Control went to a tailgate party hosted by multiple fraternities and sororities. The officers did not say who they were, but were able to get wristbands to consume alcohol after their ID’s were checked.

The officers reported that the bouncers outside of the tailgate were checking ID’s sporadically letting some students walk in, while checking others.

Officials say many students were also using smelling salts in an attempt to sober up faster.

Search warrants are now issued to check cellphones, and computers associated with the tailgate party to learn more details about the party.

Potential violations for those involved include selling or furnishing alcohol to minors, and selling liquor.
