Montgomery Pride United event 'shut down' after ABC, police inspection

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - A Montgomery Pride United event was reportedly shut down after an inspection by law enforcement Saturday night.

MPU posted about the incident on its Facebook page, saying, “The police just shut down the drag shows tonight at Touch of Soul. This is why we fight.” The shows were held as an after party following the Montgomery Pride March Saturday afternoon, according to another Facebook post.

Montgomery Police Sgt. David Hicks confirmed a restaurant in the 100 block of Montgomery Street was inspected at around 10:45 p.m. Saturday night. Touch of Soul Café’s address is 115 Montgomery Street. Hicks said MPD and Montgomery Fire/Rescue assisted in a pre-planned ABC Board inspection detail of clubs and bars in Montgomery, during which MFR saw the restaurant had armed security and people collecting money at the door.

Hicks said the kitchen was not operating at the time, and Dean Argo with the ABC Board stated a restaurant license is issued for locations that are “habitually and principally” used for the purpose of preparing and serving meals for the public to consume on the premises. Hicks said after a safety inspection was completed MFR told the owner that the business, as a restaurant, needed to close by midnight. No citation was issued and no arrests were made.
