The Michigan Liquor Control Commission is stripping the liquor license from The B.O.B. nightclub facility in Grand Rapids for 10 days. Owners of the popular night hotspot had appealed a three-day liquor license suspension that came as a result of the facility over-serving a man who was already drunk. He fell four floors down a stairwell at The B.O.B. to his death. The original suspension was to be from May 30 to June 1, and will now be from June 10 to the 19th. The state is also seeking a stiffer fine for The B.O.B., asking the LCC to increase it from $600 to $900. Lawyers and owners for The B.O.B. say every day without a liquor license will cost them $20,000, and they argue they were not responsible for the death of Kevin O'Brien.
