The Walnut Creek city council will contemplate a plan to crackdown on drunks and bars in the downtown area. Why? A few harrowing examples, as noted in this ABC 7 report: "recently a drunk woman spit in a police officer's eye," "people sometimes pee in the outdoor planters in..really nice downtown areas," and "sometimes fights break out."
The reserved East Bay even town has a committee studying the causes and effects of the local booze scene. A few possible recommendations are "stricter rules for businesses," "harsher punishments" for drunks, and staggering cutoff and closing times.
