During Friday evening, investigators with the Nebraska State Patrol conducted alcohol inspections in Lincoln County.

In all, 16 businesses were inspected, including liquor stores, convenience stores, restaurants and bars.

Three of those businesses sold alcohol to a minor for a non-compliance rate of 19%. One of the businesses failed to check the minor’s identification.

The businesses that violated the law were not named.

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, NSP spokesman Cody Thomas said.

One of the businesses that sold alcohol to a minor was also cited for allowing a minor to serve alcohol.

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