Three businesses charged with underage alcohol sales
The Board of License Commissioners for Washington County, known as the liquor board, met Wednesday with representatives of three Hagerstown businesses to discuss incidents in which employees were alleged to have sold alcohol to an underage police agent.
The sales occurred Feb. 14 and 15, according to Sgt. Kevin Simmers and Officer Heather Albowicz of the Hagerstown Police Department.
The following businesses were charged with selling alcohol to an underage person:
o Buffalo Wild Wings, 230 Railway Lane
o Red Lobster, 1681 Wesel Blvd.
o West End Pub, 5 Nottingham Road
Robert L. Everhart, liquor board chairman, said each business could lose its liquor license and be ordered to pay a $2,500 fine, but that penalty, which is the maximum, is rarely imposed.
Everhart said the liquor board would make a decision in each cases within 30 days.
