Three of 17 business checked Monday by the South Central Alcohol Task Force failed alcohol compliance checks in Mitchell and Davison County.
Shay’s, Whiskey Creek and Steak N’ More failed their checks. In all instances, the clerks did not ask to see the confidential informant’s identification and still made the sale of alcohol to an underage buyer.
This is Shay’s and Whiskey Creek’s second failure within a 24-month period. It is Steak N’More’s first failure with a 24-month period.
The penalty for failing an alcohol compliance check is increased if a business fails multiple times in 24 months. On a first offense, if a person who sells alcohol to a minor has passed a certified alcohol management class, the state can fine that business $500. On a second offense within 24 months, the business is fined $1,000.
The following businesses were checked and passed: The Depot, VFW Post 2750, American Legion, Longhorn Bar, Rob’s Short Stop, Dr. Lucky’s, Café Teresa, Moonlight Bar, One-eyed Jack’s Casino, Village Bowl/Sneaker’s Peanut Bar, Platinum Player’s Casino, County Fair Food Store, Highland Conference Center and Wild Oak Golf Course.
