“The business is prohibited from serving, selling and allowing consumption of alcohol immediately,” Carr said in a statement. “The revocation was posted on Monday after ABC found ongoing disorderly operation of the business as defined by California Business and Professions Code section 25601.”
Between March 11, 2017 and July 11, 2019, the Long Beach Police Department responded to the business “numerous times” for incidents involving battery, sexual battery, noise violations, and attempted homicide, Carr said.READ MORE: Chaos After Man Shot, Wounded During Argument Inside Gardena Target Store
