Cincinnati, Ohio – Horseshoe Casino over served a customer who later caused a deadly crash on Interstate 275

On the 20th of March, 2016, according to the casino’s video surveillance footage, Cory Lippmeier, 35, spent 7.5 hours drinking at the Horseshoe casino.

Although he was in no condition to drive, Lippmeier got into his car and drove away, reaching speeds up to 140 miles per hour before rear-ending driver Scott Petredis, 41, on I-275, killing him.

Lippmeier was charged with aggravated vehicular homicide, while Horseshoe Casino was cited with “both furnishing beer or intoxicating liquor to an intoxicated person and also sale of beer or intoxicating liquor to an intoxicated person.”

As a result of over-serving alcohol to an already intoxicated person, the Ohio Liquor Control Commission will have to consider whether to fine the casino, and/or suspend or revoke its liquor permit.
