    No Beer for Game

    No booze to be sold at Jets game next Monday

    HACKENSACK, N.J. (AP) - Fears of rowdy fans during the holiday season have led officials to ban alcohol sales at next Monday night's game between the New York Jets and the New England Patriots at Giants Stadium.

    Jets spokesman Ron Colangelo said the ban was put in place to protect fans.

    "It's for the safety of our fans, so that they can have a comfortable environment at a time when the holiday season can get very festive," Colangelo told The Record of Bergen County for Tuesday's newspapers.

    The ban comes after a sometimes violent Nov. 27 Jets-Saints game in which police made nine arrests. In one altercation during the second-half, two fans were stabbed outside of a men's room. In another incident, a state trooper broke his leg while trying to eject a fan who reportedly threw a beer bottle.

    Earlier this year, New Jersey Sports and Exposition Authority President George Zoffinger pledged to deal with the problem of drunk fans.

    At the beginning of the year, a jury found the stadium beer vendor, Aramark, and a New York Giants fan liable for $135 million in damages in a case involving a 7-year-old girl who was paralyzed when the fan hit her family's car after leaving a game.

    The fan had purchased six beers at halftime even though he'd already drank so much he was slurring his words.
