Two Bellingham bars are allegedly partly to blame for the death of Steven Rhone, Jr., 19, in a June 1 hit and run accident.
Rhone was hit by a drunk driver, Damien Mackay (his girlfriend, Amanda Littrell was also in the car) and left to die in the street, according to police. Mackay and Littrell were later arrested.
Mackay and Littrell were reportedly over-served at two Bellingham bars, the Horseshoe CafÃ© and Lounge and Johnny’s Restaurant. The state Liquor Control Board is penalizing these bars for giving the two patrons involved in this drunk-driving crash too much to drink. Both the Horseshoe CafÃ© and Lounge and Johnny’s Restaurant have been given a seven-day suspension because of their failure to abide with the over-service laws. Thomas Dixon, a member of the board, said the bars should be held accountable.
