TEXAS -- With Spring Break just around the corner, Texas liquor agents are gearing up to fight underage drinking.

The Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission announced they will be performing stings along I-35 to make sure businesses do not sell alcohol to underage customers.

Teenagers will work with the TABC by going into businesses and trying to buy alcohol.

Employees who sell to minors can be charged with a Class A misdemeanor and violators can be fined as much as $4000 and face up to a year in jail.

Businesses can be fined or have their permits suspended or cancelled.

The drinking age in Texas is 21.
