Waikiki bar fined thousands for overserving patron
Nashville Waikiki has been found guilty of two charges by the Honolulu Liquor Commission for its role just hours before a former soldier was killed by police.
The bar owners have been fined the maximum $2,000 for each of the two charges, including engaging in practices which promoted excessive consumption of liquor.
"We have an employee manual with an extensive part just to go over liquor laws and make sure they're followed," said Nashville Waikiki co-owner Karen Huntimer.
In the early morning hours of January 15, 2013, Honolulu police shot and killed Gordon after he repeatedly drove a truck into police cars on Ala Wai Boulevard.
According to the commission's investigation, the 22-year-old Gordon ordered more than 30 alcoholic drinks at the bar over the course of two-and-a half hours.
An autopsy 28 hours after Gordon's death showed a blood alcohol level of 0.196, which is more than twice the legal limit to drive.
