Lafayette, LA. (KALB News Channel 5) Underage alcohol raid leads to citations, suspension for "The Keg."

Alcohol & Tobacco Control Officials have suspended the alcohol permit of "The Keg" on McKinley Street in Lafayette after agents conducted a compliance inspection around midnight on April 18.

ATC sent in undercover operatives to verify complaints about the establishment allowing kids under 18 on the premise and selling alcohol to them.

"The Keg" was officially cited for:

-Three alcohol sales to persons 17-years-old

-Two alcohol sales to persons under the age of 21

-Three minors allowed on premise 

-Four minors in possession of alcohol were written criminal citations

ATC said less than four months ago, "The Keg" had their alcohol permit suspended and were fined $10,000 for their fourth offense of alcohol sales to a minor. They signed a consent agreement with ATC to try and improve their compliance record. ATC said the latest violations directly breached the agreement.

ATC Commissioner Troy Hebert will conduct a special hearing at ATC headquarters in Baton Rouge in the upcoming weeks to decide the fate of their alcohol permit. Until then, the alcohol permit for "The Keg" will remain suspended.

"It's a privilege to sell alcohol and not a right. ATC will revoke that privilege from any business who threatens the public health and safety of our citizens by selling and serving alcohol irresponsibly," Hebert said.

Lafayette Police Department and UL Campus Police assisted ATC at "The Keg."
