State Liquor Authority Hits Molly's Pub with 8 Violations

(WBEN) -- The State Liquor Authority came down hard on Molly's pub Friday issuing eight charges including assault, employing off-duty police officers and concealing former bar manager Jeffrey Basil as the owner.

The site of the May alleged assault that left Air National Guardsman Bill Sager in a coma could face fines and a possible revocation of its liquor license.

The charges involving state liquor laws are against licensee Norman Habib.

Prosecutors said Friday that Sager's condition was grave and that this could become a murder case "at any moment." Basil is charged with attempted murder for allegedly pushing him down a flight of stairs. Sager remains in a coma.

Molly's pub is currently closed.
