CU police: Have fun, but behave


BOULDER ó Donít sneak beer into the Colorado State-Colorado football game and donít bring marshmallows, tortillas or anything else that could be turned into a projectile.

University of Colorado police will take a zero-tolerance approach to rule-breaking at the game. Officers checking bags and scanning the crowd will be quick to throw out of the stadium anyone caught with alcohol or getting unruly with other fans or officers.

Joe Roy, chief of the CU Police Department, wants to maintain a safe, fun environment at the game and said bad fan behavior wonít be tolerated.

Last year, when rival Colorado State University came to Boulder, fans behaved relatively well, he said.

ďEvery football game that we have has some incident, but I donít think the CSU game was an exceptional game in that regard,Ē Roy said.

Banned items at the game will include alcohol, cans, glass bottles, ice chests or liquid containers of a gallon or more in size.

Police also banned marshmallows. Sometimes people squash coins or batteries into the marshmallows and throw them, Roy said.

Donít bring tortillas, either. Roy said fans at past games have used them like Frisbees.

Anyone wanting to bring fruit to the game will also have to cut it up so it canít be thrown.

CU staffs about 80 police officers at home games, along with 330 private security guards. CSU police officers also will help out.

Alcohol will be allowed in selected parking lots for tailgating parties.

ďWhere we allow tailgating, we allow alcohol,Ē Roy said.

Officers, including some on bicycles, will patrol those areas.
