ARCATA PLAZA – Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) Administrative Law Judge Alberto Roldan has ruled that the alcohol serving licenses for Arcata bars The Sidelines and Toby & Jack's be revoked.
The recommended decision follows a four-day hearing in Eureka in September during which allegations of drug dealing in the bars, with knowledge of the licensees, were aired.
ABC Director Jacob Appelsmith now has 100 days to adopt or not adopt the decision.
The bars are owned by Costanzo’s Genco Olive Oil Company, which is owned by Salvatore Constanzo. Constanzo didn't immediately return a request for comment.
