Hearing officer responds after decision to revoke alcohol permit from Raxx Bar & Grill

News

ERWINVILLE, La. (BRPROUD) – 17-year-old Ronald Campbell was arrested in connection with the deadly shooting outside of Raxx Bar & Grill last month.

District Attorney Tony Clayton pleaded to have the bar “shut down immediately pending the outcome of this investigation.”

Another development in this case recently took place at an administrative hearing in West Baton Rouge Parish.

The alcohol permit for the Raxx Bar and Grill was revoked by a hearing officer named Jason Manola.

On Thursday, the decision was made at a 2 p.m. hearing after careful consideration of evidence and testimony.

The hearing officer in this case provided this statement about the decision:

I recognize the impact of suspending or revoking an alcohol permit has on the business owner and employees. It is something I do not take lightly. As the hearing officer it was my responsibility to consider the evidence and testimony in regards to grounds for suspension or revocation of the alcohol permit. Our applicable ordinances and state laws in regards to alcohol permits and licensing are in place to protect the welfare of our citizens and visitors of the permitted establishments. I found there was sufficient evidence and testimony to support revoking T’Roy’s Inc. d/b/a Raxx Bar.

Raxx Bar and Grill can ask for an appeal in District Court anytime over the next thirty days.
