Liquor Board gives business 2-day penalty

June 27, 1996|By Craig Timberg | Craig Timberg,SUN STAFF

Howard County's Liquor Board has decided to suspend the liquor license of Dougal's Korner in Elkridge for two days for selling beer to an underage police cadet in February.

The ruling, released yesterday after a June 11 hearing, said 19-year-old cadet Christopher Adams bought a 32-ounce bottle of Budweiser as part of a police investigation, and the cashier did not request identification to verify his age.

Dougal's Korner on Washington Boulevard in Elkridge is owned by Reginald and Charlotte Dougal. The Liquor Board gave them the option of paying a $1,000 fine or closing for two days starting at 5 p.m. July 5. The Dougal's have decided to accept the suspension rather than a fine. They declined to comment on the case.
