Weird But True: Beer Sting Didn't Hurt

12/06/2009
MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- Convenience stores and grocers who sell alcohol beverages in Tennessee appear to have trained their employees well about enforcing underage drinking laws. According to a report in the New York Post, police in Tennessee recently sent an underage youth to buy beer at 27 stores, as part of an undercover sting. However, the operation failed when clerks at every store refused to sell booze to the kid.

The police put a positive spin on the operation, calling it "a pleasant failure."
