Drunk Driving and Illegal Service of Alcohol to Visibly Intoxicated Patron
A twenty-nine-year-old man was seriously injured in a car crash in Northampton County, Pennsylvania caused by a drunk driver and the gentlemen’s club, Platinum Plus that over-served him alcohol. In the hours leading up to the crash, the drunk driver drank numerous alcoholic drinks at the gentlemen’s club, including beers, mixed drinks, and shots. The drunk driver had a blood alcohol content of 0.27%, well over three times the legal limit for driving. Even though he admitted that he was visibly intoxicated and feeling drunk at the gentlemen’s club, the club continued to serve him alcohol. Prior to trial Kevin Marciano and Pat MacAvoy were able to obtain a favorable settlement against the gentlemen’s club and the drunk driver.
