Washington County liquor officials said Wednesday they plan to schedule a hearing with a Sharpsburg restaurant owner to discuss complaints of wild behavior outside the business.
The Board of License Commissioners for Washington County, known as the liquor board, said they would investigate the allegations against Gege's Place after Sharpsburg Town Councilman Bryan Gabriel requested an investigation.
Gabriel, who said he was representing the Town Council, told the liquor board during a Wednesday hearing that in addition to noise complaints, patrons of the restaurant at 208 S. Church St. have been seen fighting and urinating in public.
"There's a lot of loud noise coming from that place," Gabriel said.
Gege's owner, Benjamin Brown, did not attend Wednesday's hearing but said in a subsequent telephone interview that the allegations were inaccurate.
