Sheriff "not real thrilled" about new tailgating rules

Posted:

WATERLOO (KWWL)--The Johnson County Sheriff is worried that new tailgating rules at the University of Iowa might mean a influx of inmates on gamedays.

University officials launched a "Think Before You Drink" campaign, an effort to curb excessive drinking at Hawkeye football games.

Police also plan to step up enforcement of open container and public urination laws.

But Sheriff Lonny Pulkrabek says he's "not real thrilled" with the new rules.

He's concerned that gameday arrests could tax jail capacity
