Binghamton, NY (WBNG Binghamton) A downtown Binghamton bar receives 20 charges from the State Liquor Authority, many of the charges stemming from a joint investigation earlier this month.

An undercover agent, under the age of 21, was able to buy alcohol at The Scoreboard on May 5.

The Scoreboard faces 16 charges for serving alcohol to underage patrons on three different days.

It received another two charges in which the Liquor Authority says owner Ty Fish and his employees failed to exercise adequate supervision.

It states that those two charges as well as a charge of inadequate licenses for security guards could result in revocation, cancellation, or suspension of its liquor license.

On April 29, the Liquor Authority says the Scoreboard did not act properly when the bar became disorderly and an altercation or assault occurred.

The Scoreboard has to plead to those 20 charges on June 8, either by mail or in person.
