As thousands of people prepare to flood the city to welcome in 2014, San Francisco will institute a "zero tolerance" policy for public drinking and other assorted instances of NYE-related tomfoolery. Okay? SFPD wants you to know that there will be "zero tolerance" when it comes open containers of hooch.
"For the last few years, we have instituted a policy aimed at taking individuals who were drinking in public or drunk in public off the streets. This year, we will continue to remove offending individuals from the streets," said San Francisco Police Chief Greg Suhr in a press release. "We want everyone to have a good time, but we want to remind people of a simple fact: drinking in public is illegal. It only takes one drunk driver or one out of control individual to spoil the festivities for dozens of people."
Oh, and another thing: if you see a woman being kicked in the face after getting mugged, don't just stand there. Please do something. Thank you.
