• 2017 beer sales figure for Ohio Stadium adjusted to $1.23M

    COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Ohio State University says beer sales at its football stadium this season increased roughly 6 percent from 2016, a downward adjustment from a total sales figure the school had released earlier.

    Spokesman Benjamin Johnson said due to a miscalculation the university initially released an incorrect figure.

    He said the accurate total sales figure for 2017 was $1.23 million, not $1.35 million. The new figure was released to The Associated Press on Friday in response to a request.

    Ohio State began allowing beer sales at the stadium beginning in 2016.

    A review by The Columbus Dispatch found ejections from Ohio Stadium fell from 103 in 2015 to 24 this season while alcohol-related arrests rose from 15 to 57.

    University officials say most arrests are people under 21 attempting to buy alcohol.
