Officials say the suspension was handed down after an investigation into a September 2019 crash that left a 20-year-old Antelope resident dead. In that incident, which happened near the intersection of East Bidwell Street and Oak Avenue Parkway, ABC found that the driver was illegally given alcohol at Catch a Wave by Blue Name just before the crash.
Two people who worked at the restaurant were later arrested by ABC agents. Both were charged with furnishing alcohol to a minor resulting in death.READ MORE: 'My Nephew Died A Hero': Family Honors Man From Sacramento Mistakenly Shot And Killed By Idaho Police
