HelloThis is Samuel. I am sorry to hear of this matter. What do the police do once the person is stopped? Are they asked for ID or what?
Bordhead does have a local ordinance prohibiting Public Consumption. See this LINK
And, of course, there is a state law prohibiting Disorderly Conduct. See this LINK
But if the tavern patrons are not leaving with alcoholic beverages and consuming them in public and the are orderly then I suggest the police really have no right to simply stop them.
