An Akron bar is in trouble about two months after an underage girl crashed her car after drinking at the bar. The Ohio Investigative Unit says The Dorm is getting 6 administrative citations: 2 each for selling and furnishing liquor to someone under age 21 and 1 each for selling and furnishing liquor to someone who was already intoxicated.
The investigation after Macy Mruk, 18, was seriously injured when she crashed her car on Bath Hills Road after she was at The Dorm with friends.
Ohio Investigative Unit Spokeswoman Julie Hinds says the paperwork has been sent to the Akron Municipal Court prosecutor for consideration of criminal charges.

ANALYSIS: Drinking Underage In Akron Bars
An Akron bar accused of serving an 18-year-old Revere High School student alcohol before she crashed her car is now under investigation.
The Ohio Investigative Unit received paperwork this morning from the Ohio Highway Patrol and plans to launch the investigation as early as today. At issue is where the young adult got the alcohol. Her mother points at The Dorm, a bar in the Merriman Valley, a claim that Akron Agent in Charge John Campbell says needs to be looked at in an official capacity.
"As of this point, no, I can't 100% say that she was at that bar or that she drank at that bar, but that's why we're going to do an investigation and see what results from it," said Campbell.
Campbell says he can't discuss how such investigations are conducted, but he plans to start as early as today.
"We do have the report and we'll be starting that investigation by the latest by the end of this week, I would say," said Campbell.
Campbell says it could take several weeks to complete.
