Tavern owners fined

The Baltimore Sun

Owners of a North Laurel tavern were fined $175 by the Howard County Alcoholic Beverage Hearing Board for allowing people to drink inside after the 2 a.m. closing time Nov. 11, and for keeping the blinds closed, which is a violation of county rules.

Jeffrey Hunt, one of the owners of the Game Sports Bar and Grill in the 11200 block of Scaggsville Road, Laurel, was on the premises that morning when county police Cpl. Martin Johnson found the blinds closed and several people drinking beer at 2:15 a.m. The incident was a mistake, the owners said, and would not happen again.
