Prince George's County approves Maryland's plan to sell beer at athletic events

The Prince George's County Board of Commissioners Wednesday approved Maryland's proposal to sell beer at Byrd Stadium and Xfinity Center beginning in September.

The decision comes nearly a month after Maryland President Wallace D. Loh approved the student-led proposal, and he spoke to the board for nearly 30 minutes Wednesday about the initiative's potential as an "amazing and bold experiment." The board also heard a detailed pitch from a number of other Maryland representatives, including the University's Chief of Police David Mitchell and Athletic Council chair Nick Hadley.
