MANATEE COUNTY, Fla. ( - There is new technology on the Bay area beaches that makes it easy for police to nab you if you sneak alcohol onto the beach. A tiny alcohol sensor with one swipe over your drink can pick up if you put a little extra kick in your cup.

"You can see that came up positive for alcohol and it beeps," said Holmes Beach Police Chief Bill Tokajer.

Thanks to a "Click It or Ticket" grant, Holmes Beach Police now have detectors that electronically sniff out alcohol.
