Louisiana Alcohol and Tobacco Control (ATC) Commissioner Troy Hebert issued an immediate suspension of the state alcohol permit held by Southland Entertainment Inc., conducting business as B.E.D Niteclub & Lounge, for continuing to allow the use of illegal drugs inside the club.
A special hearing was held on September 14, 2015 in Lafayette to address violations against the club, located at 209 Jefferson St. in Lafayette. ATC cited the business for allowing customers to bring and smoke marijuana in the club.
This is the third time the business has been cited by ATC for allowing illegal drug use on the premise. The business previously entered into a consent agreement with ATC, requiring them to institute certain policies to prevent such illegal drug use.
“This type of illegal drug activity will not be allowed in places that my office permits,” said Commissioner Hebert.
Commissioner Hebert suspended the club’s permit for six months effective September 25, 2015 at noon and fined the business $5,000.
