Staff report

YOUNGSTOWN

Police went to Jitso’s Place, 2023 McGuffey Road, about 3:20 a.m. Sunday to investigate loud music and after-hours drinking.

A police report said that because of the large number of people still drinking, officers were unable to identify and cite everyone. One man was charged with after-hours alcohol consumption, a minor misdemeanor. Police said the man also has outstanding criminal charges in Oxford, Ohio.

A patron said she had just bought a beer from a barmaid, and police cited the barmaid with a minor-misdemeanor charge of after-hours sales.

Police said they asked to see the occupancy permit from the city that sets the number of people who can be in a building. Police said workers could not produce one.

Some 267 people were counted going out the front door, the report said.

The number of people who left through the back door wasn’t determined, police said.
