EDWARDSVILLE — A patron is suing beer concessionaires, alleging unlawful sale of alcohol to an intoxicated person and insufficient measures taken to prevent injuries.

Harold Sutterer II filed a complaint on Nov. 17 in the Madison County Circuit Court against TRKYMIK Inc., doing business as Riverside Saloon, and Anita J. Bowman, alleging they violated the Dram Shop Act.
