ABC Suspends License of the Ketmoree Restaurant in Davis 30 Day suspension for business operated as a ‘Disorderly House’

cabcaDAVIS- On February 25 2016, California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) agents posted a Notice of Suspension at the Ketmoree Thai Restaurant & Bar in Davis, prohibiting the business  from serving or selling alcohol for 30 days.  In addition,  the liquor  license has been placed on probation for two years.

The suspension is the result of an investigation conducted by ABC and the Davis Police Department.. From January 2013 through September 2015, police were required to respond and take action at the business location numerous times for incidents such as fights, assaults, public drunkenness and disturbing the peace. On September 9, 2015, a patron was stabbed to death during a fight with others inside the business.

Upon conclusion of the suspension period, the licensee is required to abide by specific operating conditions related to employing security guards for the safety of patrons and the public. If the licensee allows similar levels of disorderly activity to occur at any time during the two-year probationary period, ABC could move to permanently revoke the business’s license.

"Business owners  have a responsibility to their neighbors and their community not to be a menace and to provide a safe atmosphere," said California Statewide Law Enforcement Association  (CSLEA) President Alan Barcelona.  "When officers and agents are routinely called to one location, something has to change.  ABC agents often work with local law enforcement officers to correct potentially dangerous situations, suspending a liquor license sends a very strong message."
