Packers to halt beer sales at start of wildcard game's 2nd half

GREEN BAY - The Green Bay Packers have decided to stop beer sales earlier than normal during Saturday night's NFC wildcard game against Minnesota.

The Packers announced Thursday they would cut off alcohol sales at the start of the second half.

Normally, the team sells beer until the end of the third quarter.

The team says police and security staff will use added vigilance in watching for unruly fan behavior.

“Night games previously have presented us with more challenges than normal with regard to inappropriate behavior," said Packers Director of Corporate Security Doug Collins in a statement.

"We are asking fans to enjoy the game responsibly and also help us out by reporting poor conduct to stadium and law enforcement personnel, either in person, or by text at the number posted in the stadium."
