Rock Hill police catch smokers in bar

Police caught several people smoking inside a Rock Hill bar Wednesday, a violation of the current smoking ban laws.

But police didn’t cite the smokers or the East Main Street bar because the officers didn’t have the ordinance number to write a citation, according to a Rock Hill police report.

The violation is an administrative charge, said Rock Hill Police Lt. Brad Redfearn, so it’s not written on a state citation like other offenses.

In an unmarked car, police pulled up to a bar located at 1474 E. Main St., formerly known as The Crow-Bar, just before midnight Wednesday and saw people inside smoking Marlboro cigarettes and full ashtrays on the table, the report states.

The name of the bar is not available at this time.

Officers made the patrons inside the club put out their cigarettes, but didn’t issue a citation at the time of the report.

In Rock Hill, the fine can for smoking can be up to $25 for businesses and individuals, according to Herald archives.

The case is still under investigation, Redfearn said.
