ATC suspends alcohol sales at three Lafayette clubs

State authorities have suspended alcohol sales at three Lafayette businesses.

The commissioner of the state’s Office of Alcohol and Tobacco Control, Troy Hebert, ordered the immediate suspension of alcoholic beverage permits for Scotty’s Ice House, The Keg and BED Niteclub and Lounge on Saturday.

Hebert’s office said Monday that The Keg and Scotty’s Ice House were both cited for their fourth violation of sales of alcohol to minors.

BED Niteclub was suspended because its security personnel were found openly smoking marijuana on several occasions inside the club and for multiple alcohol sales to minors.

Hebert said the suspensions come after a 90-day sting operation revealed more than 60 violations in the Lafayette area and followed a meeting with more than 25 club owners to discuss the ramifications of violating state law.
