WOODLAND - California Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) agents posted a 30-Day Notice of Suspension at Kenny's Bar and Grill in Woodland on March 30, 2016 following an investigation with Woodland police into crimes and calls for service at the location.
From January 2014 through December 2015, police responded to Kenny's for incidents involving fights, assaults, public drunkenness, disturbing the peace and a homicide. The murder happened December 5, 2015 when a patron was stabbed to death during a fight inside the business.
"An ABC licensed business has a responsibility to keep an "orderly house,'" said California Statewide Law Enforcement (CSLEA) President Alan Barcelona. "To have that many calls for service for illegal or dangerous activity suggests the place needs to take a time out and reevaluate its business practices. ABC agents keep a keen eye on establishments that have had their liquor licenses suspended."
Following the 30-day suspension, in which no alcohol may be sold, the liquor license will be placed on probation for two years. If the licensee allows similar levels of disorderly activity to happen at any time during this probationary period, the liquor license could be permanently revoked.
