The bar also added an officer who had not submitted to a background check or provided a personal history background, both of which are requirements for holding an officer’s position with a business that holds a liquor license.
The bar’s owners also are facing a sales tax assessment of $3,738.56, according to an order mailed last week to the lounge from the Ohio Liquor Control Commission, a separate state agency.
The Stowaway Lounge has been at its current location for decades. It made headlines in 1989, when a patient of the nearby Dayton Mental Health Center killed two bar patrons while he was on a weekend pass. The victims were George P. Hensley, 51, of Dayton, and Keith Hudson, 28, of Mad River Twp.
The patient, Eric Moorer, was found not guilty by reason of insanity of two counts of murder.
