33-year-old Elizabeth Bushatz of Taylorsville has been charged with selling malt beverages to an underage person. Bushatz, a Taylorsville convenience store clerk, was charged following a vehicle crash involving an underage person.
On Tuesday, June 22, the North Carolina State Highway Patrol contacted Alcohol Law Enforcement (A.L.E.) after a single-vehicle collision in Taylorsville. The driver and passenger were both underage and had consumed alcoholic beverages prior to the crash.
Through the course of the A.L.E. investigation, Special Agents determined that the underage passenger purchased malt beverages from the All American Raceway convenience store on Millersville Road in Taylorsville where Bushatz was the clerk.
Special agents will submit a report to the North Carolina A.B.C. Commission documenting the investigative findings. The Commission may choose to sanction All American Raceway through fines or through suspension or revocation of the business’ A.B.C. permits.
No court date is currently listed for Bushatz.
