More Arrests Made Outside of Bar on Charleston's West Side

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- After numerous complaints regarding loud noise coming from a bar in Charleston, six more people have been arrested.

The arrests were made just after midnight Thursday outside Shaar's Bar at 829 Central Avenue.

According to a news release, Charleston Police responded to the bar after several complaints regarding excessive noise and disturbance type issues in and around the bar.

Police say once they got on scene they found 15-20 people outside on the sidewalk creating a disturbance.

Six people were later arrested.

According to a news release those arrests include:
Jimmy Green, 59, was charged with Trespassing and Public Intoxication

Michael Gibson, 30, was charged with Disorderly Conduct and Public Intoxication

Bruno Yanish, 44, was charged with Obstructing and Public Intoxication

According to a news released, police will continue to closely monitor the criminal activities in and around these types of establishments.

This isn't the first time police have been to Shaar's Bar.

Just last week, officers arrested eight people at Shaar's. At the time, police said they were called to the bar after several nuisance complaints. Some of the suspects arrested last week face drug charges others already had warrants out for their arrests, according to police.

Shaar's Bar is still open for business. Gig Robinson, a spokesperson with the Alcohol Beverage Control Administration, tells WSAZ.com the agency met with the bar's owner after the first arrests were made.

Robinson says the owner has agreed to increase security at the bar and install security cameras outside the bar.

Robinson says the investigation is ongoing and the agency is aware of the new arrests Thursday morning.
