The Clay County Sheriff’s office reports that they arrested 23-year-old Paul Davis of Hartley early on Thursday (6/27/13) on B-24 near Everly.

It was found the registered owner was not driving but the Deputy smelled an odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from the vehicle and saw an open container of beer in the vehicle. Upon further investigation, the Deputy found two more open containers in the vehicle and found it appeared that Davis had supplied beer to the minors in the vehicle.

Twenty-year-old Kyle Frederick, 20-year-old Brennen Roth, and 19-year-old Matthew Murphy, all of Hartley, were cited and released for Underage Alcohol Possession.

Davis was charged with Supplying Alcohol to Minors and open container. He was later released on a $1,000 cash or surety bond.

    These people are legal adults.They have all rights of an adult except to buy alcoholic beverages.I wonder when the states will get to decide the age of consent to buy legally?If our young adults are old enough to vote and be rolled and fleeced of their hard earned money in our courts for bad mistakes and defend our constitutional rights in the military than why hold this one thing from them?Ronald Reagan is dead.This is alot like the speed limit reduction in the 70s that Nixon imposed on the people.We finally got to go faster on OUR roads that we pay for,why not let the younger adults enjoy the privledges of adulthood full tilt.This is just another money grab by our courts and govt.
