(KMOV) – The Liquor Control Board will hold a hearing to discuss the futures of three downtown bars that city officials think have patrons that are contributing to recent crimes.
The Board may consider removing or suspending the liquor licenses of Sugar Lounge, Lure and 15.
Mark Winfield, operating owner of 15, issued a statement that said he gives full support to city officials and the police but doesn't believe his club is part of the issue.
"We feel strongly we are unjustly grouped in this nuance facilities accusation and respect the critical nature of this issue," said Winfield in the statement.
