Local News in Brief : Long Beach : Video Game Ban Studied

March 10, 1988

Pac-Man and booze don't mix, says a city councilman who wants to ban electronic video games at Long Beach businesses selling alcoholic beverages. But the issue is more complicated than it seems, other council members responded. Rather than approve Councilman Clarence Smith's request to ban the games in all businesses that sell alcoholic beverages, the council voted to send the issue to its Quality of Life Committee for further review. Six years ago, the council voted to ban video games in liquor and convenience stores where alcoholic beverages are more than 50% of the gross sales.
