Employees at 4 businesses cited for serving alcohol to minors

Employees at 4 businesses cited for serving alcohol to minors

CONWAY, Ark. – Officers with the Conway Police Department conducted surprise alcohol compliance checks at nine Conway businesses Thursday night.  Of the nine businesses, four failed compliance checks by serving alcohol to a minor. 

Officers say servers at Chili’s and Outback served alcohol to an underage informant working with police without even bothering to check identification.  At Las Palmas and Old Chicago, servers checked the informant’s unaltered identification and still served alcohol to the minor.  All four were given tickets for non-compliance.   Fines range from $200.00 to $500.00.

This is the second compliance check conducted by Conway Police in the past three weeks.  The previous check ended with employees at Casa Mariachi and T.G.I.
