The Albemarle supervisors are the next group to express concern over a recent incident involving ABC agents. They’re coming up with a letter to send to the governor about the way a UVA student was treated on April 11th. Several ABC agents surrounded the car of 20-year-old Elizabeth Daly after they thought she had bought beer at Harris Teeter in the Barracks Road Shopping Center. It turned out to be sparkling water. Charges against Daly were dropped later. Ann Mallek, Dennis Rooker and Duane Snow say the ABC might need to consider changes in training and guidelines. Ken Boyd says the actions by the ABC agents were inappropriate, but it’s not the county’s place to take a stand on every incident that happens, especially one that happens in the city. Rodney Thomas says he needs more information. The county staff will come up with a draft letter to the governor.
