(WLWT)

CINCINNATI, OH (AP) – Ohio authorities have fined Cincinnati’s downtown casino $50,000 in connection with a customer who was overserved at the casino bar and was subsequently involved in a car crash that killed another driver.

The Ohio Liquor Control Commission says Jack Cincinnati Casino must pay the fine in 21 days to keep its liquor permit.

A request for comment was emailed Friday to the casino’s operator, Detroit-based Jack Entertainment.

The Ohio Investigative Unit said 35-year-old Cory Lippmeier was overserved at the casino bar in March.

Lippmeier was sentenced to six years in prison for aggravated vehicular homicide for a crash that killed 41-year-old driver Scott Petredis near a bridge on Interstate 275. Police say Lippmeier was driving at speeds in excess of 100 mph.
