Beaumont bar's liquor license suspended, facing legal action

The West Bar and Grill in Beaumont has had its liquor license suspended and is facing legal action. 

The Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission cited the business for serving alcohol to a minor in February. The TABC says The West knowingly served 19-year-old Sarah Comstock alcohol even though she is underage.

Comstock crashed her car on the way home from the bar on February 15. She died three days later in the hospital. Comstock's mother has filed suit against The West and three other people she blames for the death of her daughter. 

The West declined comment, but in legal documents it blames Comstock claiming she drank alcohol at more places than just The West. 

A jury trial has been requested to settle the civil case. The west should be able to renew its liquor license after December 12 according to TABC.
