NORWOOD, Ohio (WOIO) - White Claw hard seltzer is the unofficial alcoholic beverage of the summer that has spawned jokes, songs, shirts, and the now infamous phrase, “ain’t no laws when you’re drinking Claws.”

However, one Ohio police department is reminding people, especially the “younger” generations, that there are in fact still laws when drinking Claws:

“We want to clear up some confusion among our younger citizens, particularly our younger female citizens. I guess maybe there could be some males that need to be advised also but, we just can’t really wrap our head around that possibility. There are in fact laws, when you’re drinking Claws. We aren’t sure where this rumor started but we want you be aware that you will be cited/arrested for all the same crimes as other types of alcohol. “Ain’t no laws when drinking Claws” is not a viable defense and will not hold up in any courtroom. So in fact if you choose to drink White Claws, be responsible and know your limit.”

The Facebook post from the department near Cincinnati has since gone viral.
