“The owner of Reggie’s has fully cooperated with the East Baton Rouge Sheriff’s Office, Louisiana State Police and the East Baton Rouge ABC office since their first requests for assistance in their ongoing investigations and will continue to do so.”
This is not the first time the bar has taken heat over its alcohol licensing.
In 2017 the Baton Rouge Police Department, along with other agencies, arrested more than three dozen people during an undercover operation at Reggie’s Bar.
During three weeks of surveillance, Juvenile Underage Drinking Enforcement (JUDE) officers noticed an increase in the number of individuals under 18-years-old in the parking lot on Monday nights.
Authorities then arrested 37 people, many of them for underage drinking, as a result of the operation.
The infamous bar had its alcohol license suspended for 45 days as a result of the sting operation.
