Two bars in Nazareth have been cited by the Pennsylvania State Police Liquor Enforcement Office.

The Pennsylvania State Police Liquor Enforcement Office has cited two Nazareth Borough bars for alleged offenses.

According to a press release, the Harold V. Knecht Post 415 American Legion on S. Main Street was cited for:

  • Allegedly selling alcoholic beverages to non-members on March 18, 2012 and May 23, 2012.
  • Allegedly serving alcoholic beverages to a visibly intoxicated patron on July 19, 2012.
  • Allegedly possessing or operating gambling devices or paraphernalia or permitting gambling or lotteries, pool-selling and/or book-making on licensed premises on Aug. 31, 2012, Sept. 28, 2012 and Jan. 17.

According to the press release, the Towne House on S. Broad St. was cited for:

  • Alleged violation of Pa. Liquor Code 499(a), which provides that all patrons must vacate the licensed premises no later than one-half (½) hour after legal alcoholic beverage service time expires, on Jan. 6.

    Retail licensees are permitted to sell alcoholic beverages between the hours of 7 a.m. of any weekday and 2 a.m. of the following day.

These charges will be brought before an administrative law judge who has the authority to impose penalties ranging from $50 to $1,000 for minor offenses and up to $5,000 for more serious offenses.

The judge can impose a license suspension or revocation based on the severity of the charge, and can also mandate training for the licensee in an effort to educate on the requirements of being a licensee in Pennsylvania.
