The board considered several alleged violations by Massachusetts Sportservice Inc., including permitting illegalities on the premises, in violation of state law and board rules.


One alleged violation was for “numerous intoxicated underage patrons observed inside premise requiring medical treatment, transported to hospital.” Another alleged violation was for an assault between patrons, and a third was for a sexual assault.

The board heard testimony from Garden officials and police today and is expected make a ruling on Thursday, said Nicole Murati-Ferrer.
