HAGERSTOWN -- The owners of Cancun Cantina on Dual Highway in Hagerstown were fined $2,500 earlier this week by the Washington County liquor board.
The fine was levied in connection with events at the nightclub in July, when music was played too loud and police had to use pepper spray on disorderly patrons to restore order, said Robert L. Everhart, chairman of the Board of License Commissioners for Washington County, also known as the liquor board.
In addition to the fine, Cancun Cantina was placed on probation for 60 days, and the managers have to present a plan to the liquor board showing the steps that will be taken to fix the problem, according to a letter that liquor officials drafted Wednesday.
The owners have the right to appeal the decision within 30 days.
Joe Rouse, a co-owner of Cancun Cantina, said Friday he had not read the letter and could not comment.
