ASHVILLE – A local watering hole has been issued a liquor violation after investigators found they were serving drinks past the “last Call Order” influenced by Gov. Dewine to stop the spread of COVID-19.
According to the Ohio Investigation Unit on August 21, Trackside Bar, Ashville, received an administrative citation for limitation on hours for on-premises consumption. OIU agents and Ashville Police Department visited the establishment at approximately 11:45 p.m. Agents observed 20 patrons inside the bar drinking beer and mixed drinks.
Agents and officers attempted to gain access but were denied for several minutes. A staff member was observed grabbing all the partial drinks and throwing them in the trash. An additional violation notice was issued for hindering inspection.
The Trackside was one of ten that was cited but only one in the Pickaway Area
