Statesboro Council warns restaurants on alcohol violations
The Statesboro City Council warned six business owners that they could face tough punishment if they or employees get caught selling drinks to underage customers.
Police and undercover agents caught a server at each of the following: Big Show Burgers, El Sombrero, GATA's, South City Tavern, Statesboro Millhouse, and Ruby Tuesday. After some discussion, council agreed to issue warnings to each.
Some of the owners described the instructions they give employees on checking identifications, but, they admitted they're responsible whether the employee practices what they're told. Several owners said they'd fired employees cited, while others opted to suspend them.
The city has heightened attention and enforcement on alcohol licenses since the August 28 death of Georgia Southern University student Michael Gatto.
