LaPlace Bar Owner Arrested for Operating without an Alcoholic Beverage Permit

PRESS RELEASE

Baton Rouge, LA: Louisiana Office of Alcohol & Tobacco Control (ATC) Commissioner Troy Hebert announced that a joint law enforcement operation recently conducted by ATC and the St. John Sheriff’s office resulted in the arrest of a local bar owner for selling and serving alcoholic beverages without a valid state permit.

Kenny Gray, owner of Kenny’s Rhythm & Blues Club in LaPlace, was arrested late Saturday evening for continuing to operate his alcoholic beverage business even though his state alcoholic beverage permit was under suspension due to his failure to pay delinquent fines associated with previous ATC violations.

“This business owner has shown a total disregard for state law by continuing to sell alcoholic beverages after receiving several warnings not to do so,” stated Hebert.

Gray was charged with R.S. 26:

75/275 Sale of Alcohol without a Valid Permit (high/low content) and booked in the St. John Parish Correctional Facility. The business also received an administrative violation for failing to maintain a clean and sanitary premise for the public.
