Alcohol License Holders and Police in Newburyport To Crack Down on Drunken Behavior

The Newburyport News reports that following another bar fight, Salisbury police will take measures to curb violent alcohol-fueled incidents. Police will be doing spot checks inside bars, holding more people in custody, and forwarding the names of bars that over-serve patrons to the town’s liquor licensing board. License holders should be aware that they could face fines or suspensions in connection any any problems at their establishments.

The News reports that the recent fight and aggravated assault and battery arrest inside Ten’s Show Club that sent a man to the hospital moved Salisbury police Chief David L’Esperance to take immediate action. This was on the heels of a violent weekend last week that saw several reports of numerous people taken into protective custody for drunkenness, as well as arrests for drinking-related fights at the beach.
