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.
