Officials said this is not the first time they`ve received reports of people bringing weapons into an establishment that serves liquor. Minot PD says it is illegal to carry a concealed weapon into a bar even if you have a concealed weapon permit.
"The purpose behind this is the fact that alcohol clouds your judgment. And, a weapon of any kind is dangerous. And, then you add alcohol and it`s just a bad situation," said Lt. Jason Sunbakken.
Bringing a weapon into a bar is a Class A misdemeanor.
