49ers new stadium: No kegs, playing catch -- all the things you can't do

When the San Francisco 49ers new Levi's Stadium opens in August, the increased seat prices are expected to draw a larger share of the "wine-and-cheese" crowd than at Candlestick Park. But any time 70,000 football fans and booze mix, there is bound to be a little trouble.

So the Santa Clara Police Department has laid out a new set of laws, set to be passed by the City Council Tuesday night, for what 49ers fans can't do at the $1.3 billion stadium, which comes with its own jail and will be patrolled by more than 100 cops from around the Bay Area.

(Tuesday night update: The City Council unanimously approved the rules, making them official. Police Chief Mike Sellers says his department can use leniency when enforcing some of the laws.)

Most of the rules appear to be pretty standard -- but some might raise a few eyebrows. Generally, a cop can kick you out for doing any of these things, confiscate your banned items, and slap you with escalating fines that range from $100 to $500, but a few prohibited acts (like bringing in a gun) can carry a misdemeanor charge punishable by up to six months in jail and a $1,000 fine.

Study up before planning your first outing.

The following acts are prohibited for fans inside and outside the stadium

No throwing objects -- liquid or solid, including footballs -- or causing anything to "become airborne"
No exploding anything -- including smoke bombs, stink bombs, or anything "repugnant or disgusting to the eyes or sense of smell"
No birds, fish, reptiles or animals, except guide dogs
No urinating or defecating anywhere except the bathroom
The following acts are prohibited for fans inside the stadium

No bringing weapons -- including guns, knives, Tasers, "impact weapons" or "chemical agents," unless you're a cop
No running on the field, going into the players locker rooms or entering any other prohibited areas unless you have a pass to be there -- and yes, that includes pre- and post-game times
No bringing in booze -- even in a flask
No going inside the stadium -- even for impromptu flag football games -- when no events are going on
No "disruptive, unsafe, noisy, boisterous or profane" activity -- we're looking at you, Seahawks fans
No buying an additional ticket to re-enter the stadium after you've been ejected
No air horns, bugles, powered megaphones, drums or other noise-making devices unless stadium officials approve
No smoking except in designated areas
No sitting in a seat that's not yours
No blocking the aisles
The following acts are prohibited for fans in stadium parking lots and other areas just outside the stadium

No "vehicle training," playing sports -- including football -- bicycling or skateboarding in the parking lots
No tailgating in unauthorized areas; it's up to the parking lot owners to approve tailgating, and the team says tailgating will be allowed in more than half the lots
No free parking
No taking up more than one space in the parking lot; there are higher fees and special spaces for RVs and other huge vehicles
No messing with the parking space next to yours
No music or any noise that can be heard from more than 50 feet away
No lingering in parking lots during specific events in which officials close the lots during the events
No selling food, drinks or anything else unless you're an authorized business, and no seeking employment or begging for money
No beer kegs. No glass containers unless it's for prescribed medication.

I'm glad they're making that a rule this year. Last few years have been pretty tense at Candlestick.

Are they gonna hang a sign or something?

Yep! Right next to the "no begging for money" sign.... I'm dying to see their plan to ensure that the homeless, hungry, and poor have advanced notice of this new policy.... Maybe send em a fax?

Wouldn't want someone pushing their basket across town just to be greeted with a no begging sign.
