ABC will post a 60-day suspension on August 22
Redding – The California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) will post a 60-day suspension at Shameless O’Leery’s Irish Pub located at 1701 California Street #B in Redding. Alcohol sales will be prohibited beginning August 22 and will not be allowed until the 60-day suspension has concluded.
ABC agents opened an investigation after receiving complaints from the community and the Redding Police Department. ABC found that Shameless O’Leery’s Irish Pub was operating as a disorderly premises and had become a drain on local law enforcement.
Between March 2021 and March 2022, the Redding Police Department responded to the bar numerous times to address reports of DUI’s, public intoxication, battery, discharge of a firearm, and obstructing a police officer.
The owner of the premises recently signed a settlement which includes the 60-day suspension as well as new operating conditions on the license which will require the presence of uniformed security guards during certain hours at the premises while also restricting live entertainment and the hours in which the premises can serve alcoholic beverages. Additionally, if similar violations continue to occur at the premises, ABC has authority to revoke the license.
“ABC is committed to keeping communities safe,” said ABC Director Eric Hirata. “We will continue working with our local law enforcement partners to hold ABC licensees accountable when a location compromises public safety.”
ABC protects communities through education, prevention, and enforcement programs designed to increase compliance with California’s alcoholic beverage laws.
