Metroplex in Liberty shuts down private New Year's Eve bash

Updated:

LIBERTY TOWNSHIP, Ohio - A private New Year's Eve party at the Metroplex Hotel and Convention Center in Liberty was shut down when the manager was unable to produce the establishment's liquor license.

A Liberty police supervisor responded to the Metroplex to do a check on the liquor license. He waited for a time and when the management was unable to produce the document, the owner was advised she would be cited for a violation if the gathering continued. That's when authorities say the manager made the decision to shut the party down.

Chief Rich Tisone, with the Liberty Police Department, tells 21 News, "From speaking with some agents with the Ohio Investigative Unit, they advised us that you have to have the license on display when you are serving alcohol."

According to the state's liquor control website, the Metroplex in Liberty does have a liquor license, but again the law requires that the permit holder display the permit at the licensed location.

Several calls were made to the Metroplex, but the phone line continually rang busy.
