Booze video gets campers evicted

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla., June 5 (UPI) -- Officials at a Florida county park said a group of campers were evicted after posting video footage of their "booze corner" to YouTube.

Jim Wilson, superintendent of Fort De Soto Park in Pinellas County, said a volunteer received a Google alert about the video Saturday because it was labeled "Camping at Fort De Soto," and tipped off officials about the massive amount of alcohol visible in the footage, the Tampa Bay (Fla.) Times reported Tuesday.

Wilson said the video gave officials everything they needed, including the location of the camp site, the names of the campers and the types of alcohol they possessed. He said the group had Jack Daniel's, Jose Cuervo, Captain Morgan, Bacardi, Grey Goose, Malibu Black and five 12-packs of Miller Lite.

"This is how we do it," a female voice says in the video. "This is the booze corner and we have more." The more included red wine, sake and other cordials.

Officials said the group was issued a trespass citation for breaking rules against booze in county parks and James Hines of Clearwater, who made the reservation, has been banned from the campground for a year.
