    I'm having trouble googling this information - can a licencee of a sports club who is under the influence of alcohol still be in charge of 'incident' control ??

    What do you mean by 'incident control" ?

    Throwing out 3 patrons (2 of whom appeared less intoxicated than the licensee).

    That the person supposedly in charge (licencee, duty manager, whatever) was intoxicated does not change the law, no.

    Look at it this way.
    The person-in-charge has duties under the liquor and gaming legislation that (s)he has to fulfil.
    Those duties do not somehow go away just because they themselves are allegedly intoxicated.

    I don't know - I'm asking.

    I'm just surprised that a man who is stumbling drunk, belligerent, aggressive and incoherent can still preform duties according to the RSA.

    I thought the paid bar lady would be considered the 'person in charge' maybe ??
