COLUMBUS, Ohio (WDTN) - A Hardin County bar has been cited for serving a 21-year-old at least 24 shots of alcohol in less than one hour, requiring him to be hospitalized.
Cribley Enterprise Inc., also known as the Regal Beagle Bar in Ada, was issued a citation for sale of beer or intoxicating liquor to an intoxicated person.
Ada residents Richard L. Cribley, 61, and Joseph L. Jarvi, 33, were charged with sale or furnishing intoxicating liquor to an intoxicated person.
The action followed a month-long investigation by agents from the Ohio Investigative Unit.
Ada Police Chief Michael Harnishfeger contacted OIU on Aug. 30 to look into the violations when the young man was admitted into intensive care with alcohol poisoning.
"Allowing and promoting over-serving puts everyone in the community in danger," Toledo Agent-in-Charge Ray Rodriguez said. "We are happy that we were able to assist Chief Harnishfeger and find justice for this young man."
Criminal charges will be presented to the Hardin County Municipal Court.
Administrative charges against the liquor permit will be presented to the Ohio Liquor Control Commission once all criminal proceedings are completed.
