Broussard bar doing dry for a while

by Walter Pierce

Hurry, rush to Jersey's Daiquiris Sports Bar in Broussard for a cold one because at noon tomorrow its license is suspended for two months by the state!

A Broussard sports bar will begin two months without its liquor license beginning at noon Friday after a state officials says it was busted for a third time selling alcohol to a minor. Jersey's Daiquiris Sports Bar on Albertson's Parkway must also pay a $2,500 fine, according to Commission Troy Hebert of the Louisiana Office of Alcohol and Tobacco Control.

Hebert's office issued a press release late Thursday:

ATC agents, along with an undercover operative and witness, conducted a compliance check of the business on July 19, 2014, at which time an employee of Jersey's sold a beer to a 16-year-old operative.  ATC has received several anonymous complaints and Jersey's was found guilty of serving alcohol to minors on two previous occasions by ATC.

Less than four months ago, Jersey's agreed to pay a fine of $5,000 and [agreed to] implement certain measures designed to eliminate sales to minors at the business.  At the hearing today, Commissioner Hebert found that Jersey's violated the consent agreement with ATC.
