Bar Where Adenhart’s Killer Drank Loses License

COVINA (AP) — The city of Covina has revoked the business license of a bar that served drinks to the man who killed Los Angeles Angels pitcher Nick Adenhart in a drunken-driving crash.

The Well Bar will shut down on Dec. 2 after the Covina City Council voted this week to revoke its license.

Andrew Gallo was convicted of three counts of second-degree murder in the collision that killed Adenhart and two others in April 2009. He will be sentenced next month.

Video shown at trial showed Gallo drinking for hours before the crash in Fullerton.

State investigators said the video was not enough evidence to close the bar but the San Gabriel Valley Tribune reports police are investigating an illegal gambling operation there.

Eight bar employees face misdemeanor charges in that case.
