Those who drown the shamrock during next month's St. Patrick's parade in Hoboken risk paying a steep price.

Police Chief Anthony Falco says he'll have his whole force on duty to crack down on disorderly behavior at the March 6 event.

Maximum fines for drinking in public will be doubled to up to $2,000.

Last year, there were 80 reported injuries and about 400 summonses issued as people urinated from rooftops and threw bottles from windows.
