RALEIGH, NC (WECT) - The NC ABC Commission punished four businesses in southeastern North Carolina at its monthly meeting this week.
The Mad Katz Bar and Lounge on Carolina Beach Road owes the state of North Carolina $700 by June 8 or it will face a seven day suspension of its permit to sell alcohol.
The ABC Commission determined an employee at the location allowed disorderly conduct or fighting to take place in 2017, despite being able to prevent it.
A business on Greenfield Street in Wilmington owes a $500 fine by June 8 after the state determined the permit holder did not stop customers from drinking alcohol at the business.
This took place at Tommy's Mini Mart 3, according to documents released by the ABC Commission this week. If the fine is not paid by that date, the business will be suspended for five days in June.
Owners for both Mad Katz and Tommy's Mini Mart said they had paid their respective fines.
In Calabash, the Beverage Warehouse of NC LLC, which is doing business under the name of Calabash Discount Beverage, is required to either pay a $600 fine or be suspended from selling alcohol for six days in June after the NC ABC Commission determined an employee did not buy malt beverages from a wholesaler that has a business in the state and a proper permit. The violation took place earlier this year.
A business in Bolivia is accused of selling malt beverages to a person under 21 years old in January. Midway Seafood will be required to pay the state a penalty of $3,000 or serve a thirty day suspension of its permit to sell alcohol.
In all, the state commission ratified penalties against 82 licensed facilities in North Carolina.
