GREEN BAY, Wis. (WBAY) – Authorities monitored the Packers game at Lambeau Field.

The Packers kicked off against the New York Giants at 7:30 p.m. Sunday. Green Bay Police say night games usually bring in rowdier crowds because of all the alcohol.

Police didn’t bring in extra officers, but they had access to more resources.

Fans were already enjoying themselves well before kickoff.

“The reputation of Lambeau Field and the fans at Lambeau Field is that we are very hospitable,” said Green Bay Police Cmdr. Paul Ebel. “However, if you get out of line, they are going to call us, and we are going to respond. We are either going to ask you to leave or change your behavior, and if you refuse to do that, you’ll end up in jail.”
