A Gonzales man was arrested Tuesday for operating a bar without a valid state alcohol permit, according to the state Office of Alcohol and Tobacco Control.

Tommy Neal was booked into the Ascension Parish Jail on 210 counts of operating without a permit, and his business, Weber City Bar, at 42283 Weber City Road, was closed by ATC agents, with the assistance of Ascension Parish sheriff’s deputies, according to an ATC report.

An ATC agent who visited the business recently, following a complaint to the agency, learned that Neal had been operating the business since March 2015 but hadn’t gotten a state alcohol permit, the agency report says.
