Open Containers in Venice Beach

I must have walked by ten or more people getting ticketed for open containers this weekend. Seriously you booze swillin’ drinkers … the brown bag doesn’t fool the law. Open containers in public are discussed in statute 25620. Fines are at the discretion of the Judge and can range between $50-$250 depending on if you have any prior charges involving alcohol.
