Soaky Mountain Waterpark Suspends Alcohol Sales
In an agreement with the Tennessee Alcohol Beverage Commission and the Sevierville Beer Commission…The Soaky Mountain Waterpark has announced today that they are suspending all alcohol sales for the rest of the season…this coming after a series of alcohol-related incidents in the last 2 months…one of which left a young woman dead and another woman in jail charged with 2nd degree murder.
The park is working with both the Tennessee ABC and the Sevierville Beer Commission to enhance their alcohol-related policies. Just recently an agent with the Alcohol Beverage Commission recommended the water park’s liquor license be suspended. The park had received two citations from the state regulators for more than a dozen alcohol-related incidents over the past two months.
In that deadly shooting incident…31 year old Sarah Romine of Knoxville, was arrested and charged with second-degree murder and multiple counts of aggravated assault and possession of a firearm while intoxicated after she fatally shot 24 year old Kelsey Cook of Louden in the parking lot. 30 year old Joshua Dannels of Crossville was also arrested and charged with possession of a firearm while intoxicated.
