Stadium alcohol ban vote delayed

Members of the authority said they wanted more time to study the proposal.
The stadium authority in November approved a recommendation to ban beer and alcohol consumption in the stadium's 8,000-stall parking lot before, during and after regular-season collegiate sporting events.
However, beer, wine and mixed drinks will still be sold inside the stadium.
If the proposed ban is approved, it will be enforced at University of Hawaii football games in 2006.
Lt. Gov. James "Duke" Aiona spearheaded the ban and called it a "monumental statement" for public safety and curbing underage drinking and alcohol-fueled misbehavior at the stadium.
