INDIANAPOLIS -- Next time you go to a Butler basketball game, you could have a beer in your hand.
The university said it's trying to get a permit to sell beer at basketball games this year. Purdue University recently made a similar move, and can sell beer and wine in its basketball arena and football stadium.
"I think it's a good opportunity really I think it's a good step that Hinkle Fieldhouse is doing this," said Ryan Bradley, a senior at Butler. "Really I think it's a little bit behind what all the major universities are doing."
The plan has been in the works for more than a year, but it's drawing concern from some parents and students.
"I can see how it could be problamatic, because people drive to these games and stuff," Ellie Mellin, a student, said. "So, it could be dangerous I guess."
Those who share Mellin's concerns are asked to attend the Alcohol and Tobacco Commission's board meeting at 9:30 a.m. on Monday, Sept. 18 in Room 260 of the City-County Building.
