Compliance checks continue | News
CONWAY, Ark. -- Conway Police continue alcohol compliance checks in hopes of seeing more compliance from local businesses. Using a 19 year old informant, officers dropped in on 10 businesses Wednesday night. Of those, seven passed they include Pasta Grill, ZaZa’s, El Parian, Brick Oven, Patron, Casa Mariachi and the Draft.
Three of the businesses failed; A server at Tazikis asked for identification and served the underage informant anyway. The employee at this business which recently opened in Conway was given a warning citation. Servers at Outback and Stromboli’s were issued citations that carry a $250 fine. The Outback employee also asked the teen for identification and upon being shown the unaltered ID, served anyway. It was a different story at Stromboli’s that yielded the same result, the server did NOT ask for ID but provided the informant with alcohol.
CPD is committed to continuing these random alcohol compliance checks in hopes of cutting down on the problem of underage drinking. This is the third compliance check of Conway businesses in as many weeks. This program is funded by the Conway Police Department.
