After parking lot arrest and ahead of football, bars talk underage drinking
BATON ROUGE - Bar managers have been invited to a meeting with the head of the state Alcohol Tobacco Control.
Commissioner Troy Hebert said he will meet with area bar business people Wednesday to discuss issues ahead of LSU and Southern University home football games. LSU opens the season at home Saturday and Southern returns to Baton Rouge for the team's third game on Saturday, September 19th.
ATC will be talking about how to prevent underage alcohol sales and trouble that may come along with minors consuming booze, Hebert wrote in a message to bars. He invited bar bosses to meet with him Wednesday afternoon at an area bar.
"The Director of Enforcement, Chief Legal Counsel, and I will be attending this meeting to discuss preemptive solutions, answer any questions, and get feedback from you. Although this meeting is not mandatory, you and your manager's attendance are highly recommended. It will provide all of us an opportunity to visit and find ways to make the 2015 football season safe and fun for everyone," Hebert said.
The meeting will come nearly two days after two people were arrested in Tigerland in an altercation where a loaded weapon was found.
