The owner of DJ’s Sports Bar was arrested again over the weekend, this time for allegedly allowing three underage women to drink in his establishment.

Eugene McDuffy, 41, 1500 block Seneca St., was charged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor, permitting a curfew violation and three counts of permitting underage consumption. Sandusky police were already in the bar’s parking lot when they noticed three drunken teenagers stumble outside at about 3:30 a.m. Saturday, according to a police report.

Two of the teens said bar staff had checked their IDs when they entered the building, and thus knew they were underage, the report said.

The pair had apparently been drinking inside the bar — one teen said someone purchased her drinks, and the other refused to say where she got her drink, the report said.

Officers arrested the teens on a conglomeration of underage consumption, obstruction and curfew violation charges.

They opted to charge McDuffy because he allowed the teens on the property while they were drinking, the report said.

McDuffy was arrested later that day and taken to the Erie County jail.

McDuffy was also arrested March 2 for disorderly conduct and permitting drug abuse after an early morning bar fight culminated in at least one shot fired. He was charged for allegedly knowing about the fight and failing to report it, police said.
