Iowans are selling rare Templeton Rye whiskey on eBay, causing state police to arrest sellers for bootlegging. Police spokesman Rex Banner assures the public they will put an end to this menace. State officials say only licensed establishments may sell liquor and only at specific sites, and that online sales amount to bootlegging, which had its infamous heyday during Prohibition.
In Iowa, bootlegging is a serious misdemeanor that can carry a fine of up to $2,000 and a year in jail.
