Spring Break madness cure: Stop the ‘beer, vomit and urine’

PANAMA CITY BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Tourism officials fed up with Spring Break madness in Panama City Beach will spend $120,000 more on security to enforce a drinking ban this year.

Bay County Tourist Development Council Chairman Mike Bennett said he joined Tuesday’s vote because “Spring Break has made enough news.”

The latest headlines have been bad indeed, after a young woman was videotaped being gang-raped on the beach this year, surrounded by a huge crowd that did nothing.

Spring Break attracts 300,000 big-spending partiers to Bay County, but the local sheriff says it’s time to take back the beaches for more family-friendly visitors.
