Police out in force for weekend booze blitz

Thomas Hunter

Police have used the launch of a two-day booze blitz to remind revellers they can be fined $478 if they are found to be excessively drunk or behaving badly on Melbourne's streets.
Hundreds of extra police officers will hit the CBD as well as Moonee Valley, Hawthorn, Prahran and St Kilda this weekend as part of Operation Unite.
Commander Trevor Carter said the operation was running simultaneously across Australia and New Zealand and would target "alcohol misuse, violence and anti-social behaviour tonight and Saturday evening".
