Former Millwood High School track standout and championship runner Gil Roberts has been charged with two misdemeanors stemming from an investigation of an Oklahoma City club he apparently owns and operates, court records show.
Roberts is charged with one count of allowing a person under 21 to be admitted into a bar area and a count of knowingly receiving, possessing, using or consuming an alcoholic beverage in violation of the Oklahoma Alcoholic Beverage Control Act.
An Aug. 24 bar check by Oklahoma City police officers at Beach Bums Bikini Club, 4007 NW 10, revealed two partially consumed bottles of liquor, one in an office and one in a room next to the bar, according to the arrest warrant affidavit. The club is only licensed to sell low-point beer.
The investigation occurred because of previous criminal activity reported at the bar, including arson, shots fired, assaults and illegal conduct of dancers, according to the affidavit.
A 19-year-old man was also in the club during the bar check, records show.
A 17-year-old girl was employed as a dancer at the club, according to the affidavit. She told officers that she gave her state identification card with correct birth date at her interview, but was hired anyway.
Roberts told officers that he was the owner of the club and responsible for hiring the managers. A copy of the girl's identification was not on file, records show.
