The Alcoholic Beverage Commission says law enforcement officers are prohibited from having a financial interest in establishments that sell alcohol. Indiana Code 35-41-1-17 says a prosecuting attorney is a law enforcement officer, Rinehart reported."If our legal staff advises us that that applies in this case to a prosecutor, then we would have to make notification to the applicant that one of their people is not eligible to hold a permit," said Maj. Robin Poindexter of the Indiana Excise Police.In a statement to 6News Monday afternoon, Brizzi said attorneys who prepared the liquor license application are looking into the matter."If we determine that there are any conflicts whatsoever, we will take the appropriate action at that time," Brizzi said.
