Evansville bar cited on alcohol, tobacco, gambling charges

Posted: Updated:

A Tri-State bar as been cited on six alcohol, tobacco and gambling charges.

Indiana Excise Police say Al's Bar, at 301 West Columbia, has been preliminarily charged with unlawful purchase of liquor from another retailer, selling alcohol on credit, being a public nuisance for professional gambling and promoting professional gambling.

Authorities say the bar was also charged with three separate violations of the state's Smoke-Free Air Law: failure to remove ashtrays, failing to post interior signs and failure to post signs at the entrance.

Officers say they seized several bottles of liquor and evidence of unlawful gambling.

We're told the bar also received a written warning for price discrimination.
