Selling beer to minors is happening at the Tulsa State Fair and FOX23 News was there for the bust.
Undercover deputies are checking vendors to make sure they are following the rules.
Inside the River Spirit Expo a 20-year-old man working with an undercover deputy showed a vendor his legal ID and she still served the man a can of Bud Light. .
"I've been ID'ing making sure, but you got me this time," said the vendor.
The 20-year-old gave the woman his legal ID that clearly stated he was underage to buy beer or alcohol.
"We don't trick you," said undercover Tulsa County Sheriff's Office Sgt. Randy Pierce.
Deputies held a class teaching vendors how to check for ID's.
The woman told the deputy she hadn't taken the class.
"It really was a mistake. I did just look at it and I was trying to look at this and I was looking for real" said the vendor.
She got a warning but next time would be a $500 fine.
"I'm going to make sure I am looking. It's my mistake and I accept that," said the vendor.
Deputies told FOX23 News in many cases FOX23 News the employee is terminated if they are caught serving to minors.
"We gave a class on this," said Pierce.
Out on the Midway, the 20-year-old checked other booths including alcohol areas and he was turned away.
Deputies also check if legal adults are buying beer or alcohol for minors.
Selling or giving beer to a minor is a misdemeanor and for alcohol it is a felony.
