Hudson Valley Escapes Statewide Underage Drinking Crackdown
After a statewide crackdown on underage drinking, the Hudson Valley seemed to make it out arrest free.
Governor Andrew Cuomo published a press release that reports that a New York State-wide crackdown on underage drinking resulted in 271 arrests. In total, 27 bars and concerts were part of the crackdown. However, no parts of the Hudson Valley seem to have had any issues.
The region in New York with the most arrests was the Finger Lakes region, with 91 arrests. 34 of those arrests happened at the Jason Aldean concert at Darien Lake. 31 more arrests happened at Darien Lake between the G-Eazy and Dierks Bentley concerts. 13 arrests actually occurred in the town where I went to college, Brockport, at The Red Jug Pub and Stone Yard Brewing Company.
For the rest of New York, Western New York had 48 arrests, the Southern Tier had 44, Long Island had 36, the Capital Region had 31, and Central New York had 21 arrests. Fake IDs were also seized during some arrests.
