First Cancun now Detroit… High end hotels, bars, and restaurants just don’t seem to understand that liquor fraud is plain stupid and a public health hazard.

Michigan Liquor Enforcement released the details of the charges and violations that resulted in a fine for the MGM Grand Hotel & Casino in Detroit.

The most concerning of the alcohol violation was the ‘fake alcohol’ charge describing the Casino as serving ‘Adulterated, or Misbranded, or refilled’ whisky drinks.

Apparently everyone enjoys free booze in resorts and casinos but the operators. In this case MGM Grand was fined $5,200 for illegal liquor practices. The violation that were investigated by the Michigan Liquor Control Commission date back to last summer. The penalties were imposed on July, 5, 2017.

The key violations that SafeProof.org is most concerned with are:

7) POSSESSED, SOLD, OFFERED FOR SALE, OR EXPOSED FOR SALE ALCOHOLIC LIQUOR, TWO JAMES RYE DOG WHITE WHISKEY, WHICH WAS ADULTERATED, OR MISBRANDED, OR REFILLED
