L.A. Coliseum faces state alcohol board accusation

The Cali­for­nia De­part­ment of Al­co­hol­ic Bever­age Con­trol has ac­cused the Los Angeles Me­mori­al Coli­seum of mul­tiple vi­ol­a­tions of their con­di­tion­al al­co­hol li­cense dur­ing the Elec­tric Daisy Car­ni­val rave last year, in­clud­ing al­low­ing teen­agers to con­sume al­co­hol.

The Coli­seum was also ac­cused of al­low­ing con­sump­tion and sales of al­co­hol out­side of its li­censed area, such as the park­ing lot. Pen­al­ties for a vi­ol­a­tion of an al­co­hol li­cense can range from a let­ter of warn­ing or a fine to sus­pen­sion or re­voc­a­tion of a li­cense.
