Roxies Sports Bar ABC Permits Rejected After History of Violence

Oct 3, 2022

Following an ALE investigation, a Warrenton bar’s ABC permits have been rejected after shootings, assaults, fights, property damage, disorderly conduct, and numerous calls for service.

Since obtaining temporary ABC permits in 2020, Roxies Sports Bar and Lounge, located at 109 South Hall Street, has been a drain on emergency personnel.

The most recent incident occurred on September 25, 2022, when a physical altercation between patrons occurred inside the business and was pushed out into the parking lot by security personnel. Shortly after, gunshots were heard near the entrance, and two patrons sustained gunshot injuries.

Any time there are a high number of 9-1-1 calls and violence associated with an ABC-permitted business, ALE special agents conduct an investigation, document any criminal or regulatory violations, and submit a report to the North Carolina Alcoholic Beverage Control Commission. The ABC Commission then reviews the investigative report and determines if the ABC permits are to be suspended, revoked, cancelled or issued a fine.
