CONWAY, Ark. (KTHV) -- Officers with the Conway police department conducted surprise alcohol compliance checks at 28 Conway businesses; 12 failed after serving alcohol to underage patrons.
Officers said servers at Shucked Surf and Turf, El Alcapulco, Los Tres Portrillos, El Parian, Eat My Catfish, Garden Grill Bar, Logan's, Brick Oven, The Draft, Naru, and Tio's served alcohol to an underage informant working with police even after checking the underage informant's un-altered identification. All were given tickets for non-compliance.
Zaza's server did not ask for identification at all and served to the underage informant. The server was also issued a ticket. Fines range from $200.00 to $500.00.
Conway PD also holds training classes with businesses to help combat the problem.
