When Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) agents went undercover at Raggs Rack Room in Eureka, they discovered violations that resulted in the business losing its liquor license. Agents posted a Notice of Revocation after witnessing alcohol being sold to an obviously intoxicated person and witnessing a minor being allowed to stay inside.
"This is one of those cases where the local police department had a high number of calls for services because of fights, assaults and public drunkenness, so our CSLEA members who are ABC agents, moved in," said CSLEA President Alan Barcelona. "Nobody wants that kind of raucous or crime in their neighborhood or business district."
According to a report in the Humboldt Sentinel (http://humboldtsentinel.com/2012/02/13/raggs-rack-room-busted/), in February, Eureka police and ABC agents visited the site and sat through last call. That night, they arrested six people, including the bartender. The bartender allegedly served alcohol to an obviously intoxicated patron and was said to be in possession of prescription drugs that were not hers. The patrons were arrested for public intoxication.
Since then a hearing was held to present facts and evidence in the case and an administrative law judge ordered the license to be revoked.
