Lock up your daughters! It appears as though underage partygoers at last year's Electric Daisy Carnival rave -- which has since been relocated to Las Vegas -- were consuming alcoholic beverages. The LA Times reports that the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, which hosted the rave last year, is being accused by the California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control of allowing alcohol sales outside designated areas, and allowing minors to drink. Also being accused is the neighboring Sports Arena.

Written versions of the accusations, which were filed in January, include the names of two underage men who were caught drinking:

According to the accusation, an 18-year-old man, Christian David Ramos, and 19-year-old Omar Soriano, were found to be drinking alcoholic beverages June 25 in areas "under the control of the licensee."

I, for one, am just glad that they were able to find the only two teenagers who were drunk at this rave, and bring them to justice.
