The Boone Police Department has continued conducting alcohol compliance checks throughout the Town of Boone to determine if establishments would provide alcohol to someone less than 21 years-of-age.  Since August 8th, eight businesses have been checked. At four of those businesses, an employee provided alcohol to an under aged person.  The businesses where an employee provided alcohol to an under aged person are:
Char located on Howard Street
Murphy’s Pub located on West King Street
Klondike Cafe located on Hardin Street
Town Tavern located on Faculty Street
Each of the following individuals was  issued a citation for selling or providing alcohol to a person less than 21 years-of-age:

  • Zachary Kane Corsi – W/M
  • Tyler Alan Thornburgh – W/M
  • Brian Matthew Fry – W/M
  • Micah Elizabeth Galloway – W/F

– all cited for Sell Malt Beverage To Someone Less Than 21 Years-of-age. This is a continuation of an enforcement effort made possible through a partnership between the Boone Police Department and Watauga Substance Abuse Prevention.  A total of 83 businesses have been checked with 16 of those businesses providing alcohol to someone under aged. Compliance checks will continue throughout the fall at random times.  Approximately one out of every five businesses checked provided alcohol to an under aged person.  Lt. Danny Houck said, “The Boone Police Department encourages every business that sells alcohol to check identification and verify age every time.  We were surprised by the number of establishments that failed to do so.”  And Chief of Police Dana Crawford said, “I would like to commend the businesses and their employees who took the time to follow the rules and help keep our community safe.”
