CRAWFORDSVILLE, Ind. (WLFI) – Indiana State Excise Police cited 13 people during the inaugural Thor Indiana National this weekend.

Officers working at the new Ironman Raceway on Friday and Saturday cited eight juveniles for possession of tobacco, four minors for illegal possession of alcohol, and one adult for inducing a minor to possess alcohol.

They also issued eight written warnings — five for illegal possession of alcohol, two for furnishing alcohol to a minor, and one for furnishing tobacco to a juvenile. No one was jailed by excise officers at race events this weekend.

As the enforcement division of the Indiana Alcohol and Tobacco Commission, the primary mission of the Indiana State Excise Police is to promote public safety by enforcing Indiana’s Alcoholic Beverage Code. While excise officers have the authority to enforce any state law, they focus primarily on alcohol, tobacco and related laws.
