WARNING: New "It's The Law" Stickers to Warn Underage Persons Not to Attempt to Buy Alcohol

  Email   Print

Some listeners have asked WGNS about new stickers on the doors of some local gas stations in Rutherford County with a picture of Rutherford County Sheriff Robert Arnold on them. The stickers, which were paid for with funds from the Tennessee Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services, advertise the fact that you have to be 21-years of age to purchase alcohol.

Sheriff Robert Arnold said the Community Anti-Drug Coalition of Rutherford sponsored the “It’s the Law” stickers to raise awareness about underage alcohol sales in conjunction with the School Resource Officers and Special Enforcement Bureau.

These officers conduct the Teen Education Alcohol Management program to enforce laws pertaining to underage purchases and consumption of alcoholic beverages. They occasionally conduct operations to determine if stores sell alcohol to minors and prosecute offenders.
