Newport Liquor license suspended after failed compliance check
Newport Liquor will be without its liquor license for one day in January after selling beer to a minor, the City Council decided.
On Oct. 30, Newport police conducted an alcohol compliance check at the store. A 29-year-old store clerk who lives in Woodbury sold a 12-pack of beer to an 18-year-old male who was working with police to conduct the compliance check.
The store clerk admitted to police he did not check the customer’s identification.
