LONGVIEW, TX - On May 7, 2010 the Longview Police Department, partnering with the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission (TABC) and Longview Partners in Prevention, conducted on-premise minor stings at area retailers to validate compliance with Texas law prohibiting the sale of alcohol to minors.
Fifteen different alcohol retailers were checked by the undercover team. Of those fifteen retailers, three of them sold alcohol to the undercover minors. The locations that sold to minors were: Address - Business Name 3080 N Eastman Road – Smashburger 1723 Loop 281 West – Wing Stop 2106 Judson Road – Pizza Hut Wing Street
At all three of these locations, the individuals that sold alcohol to the undercover minor were listed in offense reports for "making alcohol available to a minor". This offense is a class A misdemeanor and the reports will be filed with the Gregg County District Attorney's Office for prosecution. In addition, the TABC issued administrative citations to each business.
The twelve locations that did not sell alcohol to the undercover minors are: Address - Business Name 508 North Eastman Road - The Jalapeno Tree 3074 North Eastman Road - Cheddars Casual Café 3072 North Eastman Road - Buffalo Wild Wings Grill & Bar 320 Loop 281 East - Texas Roadhouse 305 Loop 281 West - Papacita's Mexican Restaurant 410 Loop 281 West - Casa Ole Mexican Restaurant 2647 Bill Owens Pkwy - The Page & Pizzeria 2100 Gilmer Rd - Pizza Hut # 9 2517 Judson Rd - Carlito's Restaurant Inc. 110 Triple Creek Dr - Posados Café Longview 280 Spur 63 - Casa Ole Mexican Restaurant 102 Tyler Street - Tyler St. Bistro
