Alcohol Agency Revokes Raided Baton Rouge Bar’s License
BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — The East Baton Rouge Parish Office of Alcoholic Beverage Control has revoked the parish liquor license of a downtown Baton Rouge bar raided Friday night by state and local authorities.
Executive Director Chris Cranford tells The Advocate he decided to suspend the license of Club Theory after the raid because the agency had been receiving complaints about the club for at least three months.
Members of the Baton Rouge Police Department, Office of the State Fire Marshal, Louisiana Office of Alcohol and Tobacco Control and Homeland Security Investigations arrested 29 people, 23 of whom were underage, at the club.
The names of the 23 minors arrested were not made public, but police booked six adults on charges that ranged from possession of marijuana to simple battery of an officer.
