During the evening hours of Thursday, May 4, investigators with the Nebraska State Patrol conducted alcohol compliance checks in Lincoln County.

This project was supported in whole or part by grant #93.959 under the SAMHSA Center for Substances Abuse Prevention, Region II Human Services, and the Nebraska DHHS Division of Behavioral Health.

In total, 10 businesses were inspected. One sold alcohol to a minor for a non-compliance rate of 10 percent. All of the businesses checked the minor’s ID.

The business that failed the inspection was:

Butch’s Steakhouse and Lounge - Hershey

The businesses included convenience stores, hotels, restaurants, liquor stores, and bars. Businesses that sell alcohol to a minor are referred to the Nebraska Liquor Control Commission. Clerks who sell alcohol to a minor are cited for procuring alcohol for a minor.
