BALDWIN CITY–A misdemeanor charge has forced a former bar manager to step down from his position. On Wednesday, 51-year-old Douglas S. Delaney pleaded no-contest to one misdemeanor count of serving alcohol after hours. According to Assistant Douglas County District Court Attorney James McCabria, a police officer saw two bottles of beer on the counter at 3:30 am on June 13th at the Salt Mine in Baldwin City. The officer also saw a woman inside drink one of the bottles and Delaney holding onto a bottle, but did not see him drink from it. It’s illegal for a drinking establishment to permit the serving or consumption of alcohol on its premise between 2 a.m. and 9 a.m. During a hearing on Monday, Delaney said that he and a co-worker were cleaning up after a busy night. Delaney said as a result of the incident, he would step down as manager so it would not effect the business. Delaney was ordered to pay a $100 fine plus $155 in court fees.
