Jacksonville's Orleans House Has Alcohol Permits Suspended

The NC ABC Commission suspended the alcohol permits held by Orleans House in Jacksonville after hearing from law enforcement officers tell of people seriously injured in separate fights, a brawl involving 50-70 people and the sale of alcohol to an underage person -- all in the last 10 days.

The club, located at 1319 Lejeune Boulevard, has held permits to sell beer and mixed beverages since 2008.

Affidavits of Jacksonville Police Department officers detail several incidents of violence and numerous calls for service to Orleans House in the last 24 months.

The ABC Commission reviewed the sworn statements of the law enforcement officers and issued the summary suspension, which is immediate and is in effect until the case is heard by the Office of Administrative Hearings.
