Broad Street bar given 3-day suspension by Beer Board
CHATTANOOGA, TN. (Times Free Press) -- A downtown bar will be suspended from serving beer next weekend after the Chattanooga Beer and Wrecker Board cited it as a disorderly place.
Southern Comfort, at 511 Broad St., may not serve beer for three days beginning Aug. 9 after a 6-2 decision by beer board members.
Nearly a dozen Chattanooga Police Department officers went to the bar and some were already on standby when the bar closed at 3 a.m. June 2. A large crowd of 150 to 200 people exited onto a sidewalk and private parking lot nearby. The crowd reportedly became disruptive, yelling profanities at police.
The incident resulted in three arrests, according to officers, and Southern Comfort was cited for operating a disorderly place.
