"She did have an ID and the physical description on that ID was inconsistent with her," explained State Excise Police public information officer Travis Thickstun. "We believe that any reasonable person - based on the physical description on the ID that was used to get into the bar - would've recognized that it was inaccurate and would not have allowed her into the bar."
The establishment was cited administratively, meaning that a report will be forwarded to the Alcohol & Tobacco Commission for review. Possible penalties for the two violations range from a monetary fine, suspension of the permit to sell alcoholic beverages, or possibly revocation of the permit.
Police said Kilroy’s Sports Bar owners and employees cooperated with officers and provided surveillance tapes and other information requested by investigators. The investigation took them much longer to complete, however, because some other witnesses were not as cooperative.
"Getting that information was difficult," said Thickstun.
Kilroy's on Walnut has been cited before for similar violations. Thickstun said the last time happened two years ago.
The bar's owners and Spierer's parents did not have a comment for Fox59, Thursday.
