Cancun Cantina liquor license violation hearing rescheduled

January 12, 2011

A liquor license violation hearing for Cancun Cantina was continued Wednesday and will be rescheduled for March, county liquor board officials said.

John Salvatore, the attorney for the Washington County Board of License Commissioners, requested the continuance because a Hagerstown Police Department officer who was scheduled to testify was unable to be there. Related medical records also had not been obtained.

Joseph Rouse, representing Cancun Cantina on Dual Highway near Hagertown, opposed the continuance because a number of witnesses had been assembled, but the liquor board members decided to grant the continuance.

The hearing was related to an incident in November involving a patron who had an "excessively" high blood-alcohol content, a violation of laws prohibiting the sale of alcohol to any person who is visibly under the influence of alcohol, according to a notice sent to the club's managing partner.
