A popular waterfront Middle River restaurant and nightclub -- which was the scene of a parking lot fight that sent three people to the hospital in June -- is scheduled to face a Baltimore County Liquor Board hearing for an alleged disturbing the peace violation in connection with loud music a month earlier.
River Watch Restaurant & Marina liquor license owners, Traci and Mark Sullivan, are scheduled to appear before the county liquor board for a show cause hearing on Aug. 15. The restaurant is located in the 200 block of Nanticoke Road.
According to documents reviewed by Patch, River Watch is accused of continuing to play music in a manner that is “in clear violation of the law.” Riverwatch is also accused of continuing to “disturb the peace, tranquility, safety, health and quiet” of the surrounding neighborhood.
Some of the alleged violations stem from incidents that occurred on May 19 and “throughout” Memorial Day weekend. One local complainant wrote to the liquor board that the the owner of River Watch had been approached regarding the music but to no avail.
A special investigation was requested by the liquor board and Precinct 11 police officers are expected to appear for the hearing.
More recently, three men were transported to Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center, including one who was stabbed, after several fights broke out in late June at River Watch. Baltimore County police arrived at the restaurant around 11:45 p.m., on June 26 and observed several groups of people arguing throughout the parking lot of the restaurant.
