A local Brownsville bar was shut down for allegedly selling alcohol without a permit.
The bar, once called Xolchi TMs on Boca Chica Boulevard, sold a bottle of Miller Lite to an undercover Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission agent.
On Friday, the investigation ensued to determine if they were selling alcohol without a license.
The bar did not have a permit or license to sell alcoholic beverages.
At around 9:15 p.m. two agents entered Xolchi TMs and bought a beer for $1.75 from bartender Casimiro Hernandez.
Agents seized 140 bottles of Michelob Ultra, Bud Light, Budweiser, and Miller Lite.
Hernandez was arrested for selling alcoholic beverages without a license, and was booked at Cameron County Jail.
According to the Alcoholic Beverage Code, Hernandez will face up to a $1000 fine and/or one year in jail.
