BOTTOMS UP: Beer & wine sales approved at ECU games

GREENVILLE, NC (WITN) - You will soon be able to buy alcohol at sporting events at East Carolina University.

Trustees this morning approved the sale of beer and wine at games on campus. The vote was unanimous, except that Max Joyner excused himself from voting, saying he had a conflict of interest.

Gov. Roy Cooper signed the bill into law late last month that allows the state's public universities the option to sell alcohol at games.

ECU joins North Carolina State University which approved the sales at a meeting on Wednesday.
