BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

Those who serve and sell alcohol in Baton Rouge got together to hear from state Alcohol, Tobacco Control Commissioner Troy Hebert ahead of the usual busy football season.

Commissioner Hebert told the group his agency doesn’t enjoy handing out fines and that his office doesn’t rely on those fines for funding. Hebert said there is plenty of fun to be had and money to be made in a safe way.

"Part of LSU football is bars and alcohol and we both know that can be a lot of fun for a lot of people but it can also be very dangerous," he said. "I was glad to see we invited all of the local bar owners, convenience store and restaurant owners to come in and learn what they can do to make sure alcohol is served and sold responsibly."
