A Holmes County bar employee was charged in Holmes County Municipal Court on June 24 after agents with the Ohio Department of Public Safety’s Ohio Investigative Unit filed the charges after an investigation revealed she served alcohol to individuals involved in a fatal crash with a train.

Elizabeth Breitenbucher, 32, of Lakeville, was charged on one count of sale or furnishing beer or intoxicating liquor to an intoxicated person. She is scheduled to appear in Holmes County Municipal Court for arraignment on July 2.

Administrative charges were also filed on the Woods, LLC., also known as the Woodland Inn, 13550 SR226, in Big Prairie for sale  and furnishing beer or intoxicating liquor to an intoxicated person.

In March, the Ohio State Highway Patrol requested agents trace-back the sale of alcohol while investigating a car verses train crash in Wayne County. The passenger was pronounced dead on the scene.

If you have information about over-serving or you have information of alcohol violations at a liquor permit establishment, please notify the Ohio Investigative Unit by calling #677 on your cell phone and your complaint will be investigated.
