JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - The Luke Bryan concert at A-State's Convocation Center hit a sour note with the Alcoholic Beverage Control board.
The ABC fined NEA Sports Club of Jonesboro $600 and placed it on 90-days probation for selling alcohol to two minors at the Feb. 18 concert.
Bill Stanley, president of the nonprofit organization, said in a statement to Region 8 News:
NEA Sports Club entered into a 10-year lease agreement with Arkansas State University in 2015 to sell alcoholic beverages at several campus venues, including the Convocation Center and Tomlinson Stadium.
The nonprofit group contracted with Sodexo, A-State's vendor for food and beverage services, to manage all alcohol-related sales on campus.
Jeff Hankins, Vice President for Strategic Communications & Economic Development, said in an email statement that Sodexo would take actions to prevent further violations:
