The majority partner in a proposed bar in the Carson Government Center pleaded guilty Thursday to driving while intoxicated.
Lacy Johnson III, 27, is leading a group of investors in the 300 East venture, which has faced opposition.
He was pulled over Aug. 26 on Michigan Road near 68th Street. He pleaded guilty in Marion Superior Court, and a public intoxication charge was dropped.
Roger Rayl, spokesman for the Marion County prosecutor, said Johnson's penalties include a $100 fine, six months on probation and 24 hours of community service. He must undergo alcohol evaluation and treatment, Rayl said, and his license will be suspended for another month.
I wasn't aware that Johnson was the majority partner in the bar as this story indicates. Businessman Bill Mays, who says he's personally invested over a $100,000 in the bar, has been the most outspoken investor associated with the bar.
