Liquor license suspended after bar manager threatened minor

ELKADER (KWWL) -

A bar in Elkader now has its liquor license suspended after a manager reportedly threatened a minor doing alcohol compliance checks.

The Clayton County Sheriff's Office charged 33-year-old Tim Finley with second degree harassment, false imprisonment and third degree kidnapping.

At Fennellys' Irish Pub on December 28, Finley told the minor he thought it was a sting and threatened her with a pipe, telling her to go down into the basement and refusing to let her leave.  Eventually she was able to go and reported what happened to the deputy outside accompanying her on the checks.

Friday the Iowa Alcoholic Beverages Division suspended the license for Fennellys' Irish Pub.

It says the "licensee lacks sufficient good moral character required to hold a liquor control license in Iowa."

The license is suspended until further notice.
