Wining & Dining But Hide The Wining Part

The general manager of the Lenoir County ABC is under scrutiny after a state auditor found that he turned in a falsified receipt for a company dinner that happened last December.

That report by the auditor shows that Bruce Hill asked Charles Anderson, the manager of the Barn Steakhouse in Kinston, to alter the original receipt. Instead of listing that they had bought alcohol and beer along with their dinner, the new receipt showed they had purchased extra coffee, tea, and a cheese, cracker, and veggie plate.

WITN spoke with Anderson who says its not unusual for someone to ask him to alter a receipt.
"It's not uncommon. I don't have enough fingers for how many companies, groups are required to show things different ways or can't have it shown this way, and I've never thought nothing of it."

Officials say what Anderson did isn't illegal, but he says he won't do it again, saying he doesn't like the idea of his integrity being questioned.

Hill did not want to go on camera, but he did tell us that he acknowledges what he did was wrong.

There's no word yet on the action that the ABC board may take against Hill. The state auditor says falsifying documents is against ABC policy and is a removable offense.

    Falsifying documents is a dismissable offense where I work. It's the same as stealing from the company in this case if alcohol is not allowed on your expenses. It's also called a "lie" so tell it like it is.

    Well, unless it's a mis-quote, "...never thought nothing of it" kind of says it all.
