DA Mike Ramos to Crackdown on

DID YOU KNOW: 37% of minors arrested for DUI in San Bernardino County say their last drink was at a house party and/or gathering.

Today, at the Fontana Police Department, District Attorney Mike Ramos, Sheriff Rod Hoops and all the police chiefs of San Bernardino County spoke at a press conference in favor of reversing the trends of underage drinking and enforcement of social host ordinances.

A social host ordinance makes it illegal to provide an environment where underage drinking can take place.

"These ordinances are aimed at party hosts who know what is going on and let the drinking continue," said District Attorney Mike Ramos. "I can assure you that my office is committed to prosecuting violators of the social host ordinances."
