Drinking games may be banned in Moorpark bars

MOORPARK, Calif. /*Moorpark police*/ said drinking games, such as beer pong, have become popular at Southern California restaurants and are used as a way to lure customers.

But when the participants become intoxicated, the games can promote unsafe activities, such as drunken driving, fights and sexual assaults.

The city of /*Huntington Beach*/ has already banned the drinking games at businesses.

Moorpark police said the goal of the ban is not to limit drinking, but to limit extreme inebriation.

First time violators would be issued a $100 fine.
