NEW YORK ( WPIX) -- After receiving it's third citation, rocker Pete Wentz's East Village bar, Angels & Kings, was temporarily closed Friday after allegedly serving alcohol to minors, People Magazine reports.
Authorities shut down the establishment located on East 11th Street, as investigators look into reports that alcoholic beverages were being served to underage customers.
Wentz, who co-owns the popular bar, did not immediately comment on the closure. A list of the bar's violations was posted on the bar's front door as of late Tuesday.
"There was an outstanding legal issue which the owners are now working to correct," a spokesperson for Angels & Kings told People.
Although the bar's two previous citations were dismissed, they can still be used against the owners who may face further penalties and punitive measures, a spokesman for the New York Liquor Authority told the magazine.
The East Village bar is still rather new to the neighborhood, having just celebrated its second anniversary in April.
