In Captivity

RICHLAND, Wash. (UPI)--Justice of the Peace Albert Yenecopal has instructed the Richland police to call the parents of minors arrested on charges of drinking immediately after the arrests instead of waiting until the youngsters have sobered up.

He said he wanted parents to see their sons and daughters in the city "drunk tank" to give them more incentive to influence the youngsters against drinking.
