Cops sting Clyde's Wine Night for underage drinking, DUI

ROCKVILLE, Md. (WUSA9) -- Several people under the age of 21 were cited for having fake IDs and drinking at Clyde's-Tower Oaks Lodge this week, say Montgomery County Police officials.

Police officials say from Monday night into Tuesday morning, plain-clothes officers and a Department of Liquor Control inspector monitored the restaurant on Preserve Parkway in Rockville for alcohol violations following complaints of underage drinking, assaults and drunk driving. According to police, the complaints seemed to coincide with on-going drink specials on Monday evenings, or Wine Night.

During their monitoring, police cited seven people under the age of 21 for possession of fictitious identification. Five people were issued for citations for possession of alcohol under 21. Police say all five people, who had been drinking inside Clyde's, had a Blood Alcohol Content over 0.10.

Five more people were arrested for DUI. Police say their Blood Alcohol Contents ranged from .09 to .22. The legal limit in Maryland is .08.

The inspector from the Department of Liquor Control also saw "patron over service." Police say a customer was stumbling and unsteady, requiring help from others to walk. She had a BAC of .23. The inspector also noted that employee records were unavailable for routine inspection and that there were alcohol sales to minors.

The inspector will be following up on the violations, say police.
