Revocation hearing set for Applejax

Posted: Updated:

Albany city commissioners schedule a hearing to decide whether to revoke a bar's alcohol license.  Two men were killed in the parking lot of Applejax bar and lounge last month. 

Police say the man who stabbed them acted in self-defense as the other men tried to rob him.  The city set April 19th as the hearing date.

The owners will be allowed to testify as to why they should keep their license, but city attorney Nathan Davis says he has evidence that proves why they should be shut down.

He said, "We feel there will be substantial questions as to what security was or was not in place, whether the provisions of the alcohol code were followed as far as reporting disturbances, maintaining order, all the things that are very specific in the alcohol code."

Davis says the alcohol code also specifies that the parking lot is an extension of a business and shall be properly secured.
