Youngstown police crack down on sale of alcohol to minors

Youngstown

The Youngstown Police Department’s vice squad summoned four employees and arrested one at four establishments Saturday, after observing the sale of alcohol to minors, according to police reports.

Using undercover 19- and 20-year-old males, police observed the employees at Schenley Carryout, 2725 Mahoning Ave.; Somewhere Else Bar, 2426 Mahoning Ave.; Ultimate Food Mart, 911 Belmont Ave.; and Irish Bobs, 3602 South Ave. sell the underage males alcohol, the report said.

All four suspects were charged with underage sale of alcohol and are due in Youngstown Municipal Court, 9 a.m. today.

Police arrested Derrick Sharpe, 34 from 372 Fairgreen Ave., a bartender at Somewhere Else Bar who police said served a customer cocaine and was found with marijuana in his pocket. He was charged with felony drug trafficking and three misdemeanors.

Sharpe also will be in city court 9 a.m. today.

Had the author of this article been more direct with his assignment, we would know what type of prohibitive drink was served. As memory serves me-- at one time anyone 18 and older could purchase and drink 3.2 beer -- I know Pogo's ( a college bar near YSU, probabaly long gone) was always filled on a weekend night. Have the laws reverted back to 21 ?? In Calif, where I now live-- it has always been 21; but being close to the Mexican border-- the kids just get on the San Digeo tram and enjoy party time there.

POGO's bring back great memories of shared $5 pitchers of 3.2 beer during early weekend get togethers with friends before trips to the APARTMENT for live hard rock music, and then there was the daily couple of their hot dogs and a beer for a quick lunch between classes at YSU. Thanks for the memories!

The legal drinking age has been age 21 everywhere in the US since the 80's.

Ytown-- I had absolutely nothing to do with the football drinking problem ay Mooney-- Why be a hater ?? In truth, I was upset when I read about it-- BUT as a newly retired teacher -- with 34 years of experience-- I know many families do not see a problem with kids drinking at home with them, so why would the kids see a problem if a parent brought alcohol to the locker room. I felt, that the police should have looked it the incident ( notice not accident) much closer and PRINTED the parent names int he newspaper. Until parents take FULL responsibily of what occurs in their homes, and the schools, US education will continue to be an area of plight. Doubt me-- ask to sit in classrooms of today and hear the kids, cuss teachers out, and then say "my mom will get you fired" simply because you reminded the student, that the language he/she used was not appropriate for a classroom ( forget the halls,and outside) OH yeah-- Thanks to many Mooney teachers, I have earned a BS in Education, 2 Master degrees and my PhD.

I am glad I brought POGO memories back to some.

Grog You must be younger than 50. 3.2 beer was allowed for 18 years old in OHIO during the 70s. Look it up. We could even buy it on a Sunday night @ Pogos on any other bar/pub/ establishment. such as the Crystal, The Uptown, Sheridan Inn, Silver Mirror.... Ahh yes, memories of Ytown. ( AND no I didn't drink often - had diiner there on dates or with family.

What about the Quench, Teenies, and the South Side Civics on South Ave.? Happy times! Better yet, The Pub in Kilcawley on the YSU campus had pitchers of Old Milwaukee for $3. Just had to leave your YSU ID at the bar. You are correct that draft beer marketed at the time had a limit of 3.2% ABV. Then, the do-gooders stepped in and said that this was evil. This killed a lot of the places around YSU and the "bar bands". Now, these college kids don't have anywhere to go and socialize on weekends like we did. Now there is a bigger problem with binge drinking and drugs.
