We brought you news of a police report filed last week with allegations that VBar’s owners were blocking police from entering their premises and while an unconscious bystander laid inside without help.
This week, KOMO news has picked up the story and is reporting that the Liquor Control board is investigating the incident as possible grounds for revoking their license.
The bar’s owner says he doesn’t foresee any serious consequences, but the bar, which was associated with a deadly shooting just months ago, is now accused of failing to cooperate with police.
“We want to do good in the community. We want to be a good business and have people come here and enjoy themselves,” said V Bar owner Jeff Pham….
…But Pham says part of the problem was a police officer making a remark he considered out of line.
“As one was walking in, he said, ‘I’m not going to let another murder happen here.’ And I said, ‘Officer, please don’t say that, because it’s not true.’ And he said, ‘No, it is true,”‘ said Pham.
Is this “out of line” comment grounds for refusing police entry?
