GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — The B.O.B.’s liquor license has been suspended for 3 days, according to a spokesperson for the state’s liquor control commission. Commissioner Ed Clemente issued the ruling this morning. Two hearings were held; one in January and the other in February.

The death of Kevin O’Brien, 36, spurred the liquor control commission to get involved. O’Brien died after falling from the fourth floor stairwell at the B.O.B. in May 2013. He’s the third person to die in this manner at the B.O.B.

In January 2014, the B.O.B. was charged with serving alcohol to an intoxicated person, over-serving alcohol, and allowing an intoxicated person to loiter.

The business was found guilty on the first two charges and fined $600 as a result.

In a statement, B.O.B. management said it appeal the commission’s decision.

    Only a fool would get drink and blame someone else for their actions. It's a shame someone died, but to blame the BOB is a big injustice!

    During its early years, the foundation operated in New Delhi under the leadership of

    Verma family members. The elders being busy with their bread earning, they actively

    encouraged the youngsters to enter the arena of politics. The problem is; if healthy influences and supportive conditions for change are absent;

    expecting someone to ‘shape up’ is akin to expecting a twisted stem to untwist.
