The Aggie Theatre in Fort Collins will start submitting all concertgoers under the age of 21 to a breathalyzer and pat down following a liquor license violation, the Coloradoan is reporting.

The venue, which has upcoming shows including Leftover Salmon, Method Man & Redman and Minus the Bear, had its liquor license revoked on Thursday. Police repeatedly found drunk, underage people in or around the Aggie Theatre, according to the Coloradoan.

“Underage patrons who are visibly intoxicated are consistently found in or associated around an event at the Aggie,” police told the Coloradoan. “This happens more at the Aggie than it does at any other establishment in the downtown area.”

No minors will be allowed into the Aggie if they’ve consumed alcohol and the pat downs are to ensure these minors aren’t sneaking in alcohol or other contraband. According to the article police also saw concertgoers smoking marijuana during a concert.

    Because this is clearly causing such an overwhelming and devastating problem to the Fort Collins community… If stopping pot smoking during a CONCERT is on the top of the FCPD’s priority list, I am completely and utterly ashamed.

    Mr. Leary has a reputation. My guess is he angered the local authorities. This is why following the golden rule is never a bad way to live your life. When you’re not a nice guy…that’s how the world tends to treat you.

    This has to do with the FCPD being a bunch of dips hits. Really they found drunk people near the Aggie while a concert was going on? Umm its in Old Town where you can throw a rock ten feet and hit another bar. How in the hell did FCPD know where these kids where coming from or going to. The FCPD said that ‘Underage patrons who are visibly intoxicated are consistently found in or associated around an event at the Aggie,” police told the Coloradoan.” . So does that mean the police stop and issue summons for those that are drunk and underage in public? Or are they just assuming that these kids looked under 21? If they were drunk and under age I can guarantee you that the money hungry FCPD would have wrote them all tickets. But you didnt read about that in the article because it is all speculation by FCPD. This is just another attempt of the FCPD and Old Town Boys clubs to harass any business that doesn’t fit into the City’s idea of the perfect city. Fuck Fort Collins, that town has gone to shit thanks to all the mega church shit bags.
