Calling A Party Foul

July 8, 2007 Posted at 10:30 PM CST:

A quiet float down the Spring River in Fulton County is turning into anything but. A few too many people pulling a few too many out of their cooler is making it more raucous than relaxing. Now, the Game and Fish Commission, along with the Fulton County Sheriff's Office is calling a party foul.

"It's kind of like Mardi Gras." says Lt. Steve Taylor of the Enforcement Division of the Game and Fish Commission.  That's why the commission is saying it's time to pull pack on the partying on the spring river. Becuase, when the partiers go overboard on the weekends, it's hard for everyone, especially families, to enjoy a quiet float or canoe trip down river.

The officers will be on patrol all summer long.  They will be both in uniform, and in plainclothes.
