TOWSON -- The owners of Padonia Liquors in the Padonia Village Shopping Center were fined $150 yesterday for serving an underage, undercover police cadet June 9. The owner of Dreamer's Lounge, in the 4000 block of Old North Point Road, was fined $150 for allowing a female dancer to expose too much of her body in April.

But the county liquor board dropped charges of serving underage drinkers against Scoozzi in the 7600 block of German Hill Road in Dundalk and Sheraton North Hotel in Towson. The dismissals came after a police cadet and a detective failed to appear.

The board also approved a license transfer that will allow Jasper's in the Commerce Center in Pikesville to be transformed into a Loco Hombre restaurant.

Man, 20, dies of injuries suffered in mowing accident


REISTERSTOWN -- A Reisterstown man died Saturday from injuries he suffered during a mowing accident last week at River Downs in Finksburg, authorities said.

Jeffrey J. Oyan, 20, of the 3400 block of Winterberry Road was mowing about noon July 27 when he shifted the 84-inch mower's transmission to neutral to gain more speed as he traveled downhill near Lawndale Road, police said. The tractor ran into a washed-out area, overturned and struck a bridge, police said.

Oyan, employed by the River Downs Association, was flown to Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore, where he was admitted in critical condition, a spokeswoman said.

Police open substation in Brooklyn Homes

Baltimore and Housing Authority police departments opened a substation in the Brooklyn Homes public housing complex yesterday to strengthen ties between the community of 1,500 residents and its protectors.

The new office at 832 Glade Court will not be staffed 24 hours a day, but will be used by officers from both agencies to write reports, make telephone calls and assist residents.

"It will certainly help us get closer to the community," said Maj. Elmer Dennis, the Southern District commander for the city police. He said violent crime in Brooklyn Homes dropped 37 percent last year, but he said the area still is troubled by drug dealers.
