The company that owns the Winnipeg Jets is in trouble for serving alcohol to a minor.
According to the Winnipeg Free Press, True North Sports & Entertainment will face the charges next week in a disciplinary hearing before the province’s liquor control commission.
The incident that was witnessed by an inspector allegedly occurred Oct. 9 during the Jets’ home opener at the MTS Center.
If a penalty is assessed, it’s likely to be a warning or fine. So rest assured, Jets fans; the MTS Center won’t be losing its liquor license.
The minor that was served the alcohol maintained that it was very good beer.
He purchased it with a fake ID.
His name was Brian McGee.
When he was 17.
