Beer sting nets restaurant violators

Undercover officers busted eight restaurant employees in a recent East Memphis beer sting.

Tips from citizens lead the Metro DUI squad to restaurants along and near Germantown Parkway and Highway 64.

As part of the sting, officials wanted to see if customers under the legal drinking age of 21 were served beer.

Of the 20 restaurants the squad visited, 40% were found in violation of selling beer to minors and not checking for proper identification.

Eight employees received misdemeanor citations.
