Martell’s Tiki Bar Severely Penalized for Over-Serving Patron who was Killed in Car Crash in 2013

TRENTON – Acting Attorney General John J. Hoffman and the Division of Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) announced today a settlement with Martell’s Tiki Bar in Point Pleasant Beach for serving alcohol to an intoxicated female patron who later caused a motor vehicle crash in Old Bridge that killed her and severely injured another woman.

The bar, owned by Martell’s Tiki Bar Inc., will pay a $500,000 fine and have its license to serve alcohol suspended from September 28, 2015 to October 28, 2015. In addition, all staff involved in the service of alcohol at Martell’s will be required to undergo training in the safe service of alcohol, which will be overseen by a compliance monitor approved by the ABC and paid for by Martell’s. The monitoring requirement will last as long as the current owners hold an interest in the alcoholic beverage license. Martell’s had been charged with one count of service of alcohol to an intoxicated patron and had pleaded “non-vult,” or no contest.

“There can be deadly consequences when alcohol and driving are mixed, so it is vitally important that establishments that serve alcohol, do so responsibly,” said Acting Attorney General Hoffman. “It is unlawful in this state to serve alcohol to a person who is actually or apparently intoxicated and the repercussions of not abiding by the law have been brought to bear in this tragic case.”
