Lubbock TABC Agents Under Investigation

NewsChannel 11 received an anonymous letter in the mail basically calling The Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission agents "bullies." We also found, Tuesday, that TABC agents are filing more cases at the District Attorneys office. A grand jury dismissed three cases Tuesday and several more last week. According to the letter, a bar owner accuses agents of harassing customers and restaurant bar owners and they want it to stop.

Regional TABC Captain Dan Cullers says he has launched an internal investigation since complaints have been filed in Austin. Cullers says three new agents were hired in June and have been trained, but he is not certain if his agents are acting overzealous. "We haven't seen this before. When you hire new agents, then the numbers of citation and arrests will jump. And now, so have the complaints," says Cullers.

NewsChannel 11 knows of at least three different restaurant owners who feel TABC agents abuse their power. However they would not tell us that on camera for fear the TABC would retaliate.
