Few problems at Peru fireworks

Posted by wlpo on July 5, 2012

No beer, no problem for the alcohol-free zone set up for the Peru fireworks.  The city tried something new Tuesday night by creating an area without alcohol on Water Street.

Police Chief Doug Bernabei says everything went well.  He says about 8 or 10 people went into the zone with beer and complied after being told about the restriction.

Police had to handle a couple of skirmishes and there was one minor arrest.
