RED BANK, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) — Thinking of acting up during Red Bank’s July 4 fireworks? Better start saving now. The borough plans to slap the maximum fines of $2,500 for those convicted of disorderly conduct, public drinking or other misbehavior.

Mayor Pasquale “Pat” Menna tells the Asbury Park Press of Neptune that Red Bank will not tolerate what he calls “anti-social behavior.”

Last year’s fireworks display over the Navesink River included numerous arrests for public drinking, underage drinking and disorderly conduct.

This year, coolers will be checked for alcohol before being allowed to enter borough parks to watch the show.
