Center Township Trustee Carl Drummer assured Star readers last Sunday that alcohol would be served in moderation at the proposed 300 East "private club/bar" space he turned over to political insiders earlier this year without a lease, or without following zoning and building code regulations. But Indy Undercover reports that the man who is supposed to be in charge of the proposed bar, Lacy Johnson, III, who is the son of one of the investors, was arrested recently for driving while intoxicated. Indy Undercover reports:
Indyu was in the CCC today and guess what Indyu found? A DUI arrest for Lacy Johnson, Jr. Not only is he the son of Lacy Johnson, Sr., but also one of the registered owners of 300 East, that bar in the government building. Apparently Johnson's case is playing musical judges right now. Indyu will not make fun and point out the total irony of the owner of a bar in a government building is arrested for DUI, but you LEOs can. Have at it. By the way, he's also applying for the liquor license in the Carson Center as well.
If he is found guilty, demonstrating that one of the principals of the proposed bar in the government center can't drink and drive responsibly, how can we expect any better of the patrons served at the establishment. Julia Carson, shut down this bar before it's too late. Big hat tip to Indy Undercover for catching this one.
