State Alcoholic Beverage Control officials announced late Friday afternoon an “immediate change” in agency practice to include a uniformed agent in operations like the one that landed a University of Virginia student in jail following the purchase of sparkling water.

An agent “in a police uniform” will “act as a contact person” when plainclothes agents approach people suspected of breaking the law, the ABC said in a two-page statement. ABC said the uniform likely will consist of a utility belt and an “overgarment” emblazoned with the word ‘police’ in white letters. The agency does not currently have a police uniform, a spokeswoman said Monday.
