COLUMBUS COUNTY, NC (WECT) - Thursday, District Attorney Jon David met with alcohol law enforcement officers to discuss closing a place called Balls, a popular hangout in Evergreen.
Ever since three people were shot at the Balls last month, deputies have made an effort to close down the hangout spot.
"I like to think there's an emphasis on these cases and better working relationship between the DA's office and sheriff's office. Also the state agency of ALE. The three agencies are working together to do something proactive. To shutdown people who are operating illegally as nightclubs.' Said David.
Last month deputies arrested James Bethea, the owner of Balls after they say they found large amounts of alcohol.
We're told the place does not have permits to sell it.
