BEST LIQUORS CASE TO RESUME

The Red Bank Borough Council has set June 14 as the resumption date of its hearing in the Best Liquors license matter.

The hearing, a special session of the council, will begin at 5p.

Borough Attorney Tom Hall, who is prosecuting the case, tells redbankgreen he expects that the hearing will conclude that night.

At the opening of the hearing on May 22, four witnesses testified on behalf of the borough: a 20-year old Middletown woman who was arrested for illegally buying beer from Best Liquors last year and three police officers involved in arrests or investigations centering on the store at Leighton Avenue and Catherine Street.

Samuel ‘Skip’ Reale Reale, representing the store and its owner, Sunny Sharma, has not yet had a chance to put up his case. He said he may call “up to three witnesses, if I call any.”
