Paying big time to party

If you're under 21 and want to party with booze at a PNC Bank Arts Center concert, how much would you be willing to pay for the privilege? Probably not $539. But that's the bill for the final six of about 50 defendants after they pleaded guilty in municipal court Wednesday to charges of disorderly conduct and underage consumption of alcohol. They were fined $506 and assessed $33 in court costs.

These teens presumably had tickets for the Fall Out Boy concert June 6, so they already paid out good money. Why risk a hefty fine by partying wildly? Teens don't make a lot of money at whatever jobs they can get. Those young adults will have to put in long hours now to earn $539. And weren't they there for the concert? Apparently not. What a waste of money and time!
