Illinois State Police say 28 citations for possession or purchase of alcohol by a minor, two citations for public urination, one citation for unlawful use of identification, one citation for littering, and one citation for obstruction of justice were issued during this effort.

We have included a list of businesses involved in this effort below:

- Red Lion: Seven Citations
- Joe's Brewery: Nine Citations
- Kam's: Seven Citations
- It's Brothers II: Three Citations
- Firehaus: Three Citations
- Clyborne: One Citation

Three citations were issued during a "Street Sweep" by ISP Troopers and Champaign Police Officers.  Minors convicted of the purchase, possession, or consumption of alcohol could face a one-year suspension of their driver's license.
