ABERDEEN, Wash. - A bartender was charged with serving alcohol after hours early this morning, when an officer making a patrol stop around 2:30 heard what sounded like a party coming from the Northwest Passage off of State Route 105 in South Aberdeen. Police Captain John Green tells us when the officer entered, multiple people were drinking and playing pool. The bartender, a 51 year old Aberdeen woman, told the officer that the group was helping her close the bar.
"they're helping me close."
Green said the woman was arrested for felony warrants out of Thurston County, also charged with serving alcohol after hours, and possession of a controlled substance.
