The owner of J.T.'s Sports Bar in Atascocita has voluntarily cancelled her permit to sell alcohol following a joint probe by the Harris County Sheriff's Office and District Attorney investigators into narcotics offenses at the establishment .
According to reports from the Harris County DA's Office, six people, including employees of J.T.'s Sports Bar, were recently charged with possession of and selling cocaine to undercover Sheriff's Office deputies, along with other crimes.
"This is the latest push in our ongoing effort to stop the carnage on our roadways," said Sean Teare, chief of Vehicular Crimes Division of the District Attorney's Office. "Establishments like this one fuel mayhem inside their walls and on our streets."
The establishment at 8110 East FM 1960 has a history of selling alcohol to minors; serving after hours; serving to drunks and spurring violence such as aggravated assault and DWIs, according to court records.
The permit cancellation takes effect February 4.
Those charged this month with offenses at the bar include:
Devin Shaun Hunter, 24 (Possession and Delivery of Controlled Substance)
Blain Bigelow, 27 (Delivery of Controlled Substance)
Jorge Aguirre, 36 (Delivery of Controlled Substance)
Jonathan Ray Zamudio, 40 (Possession and Delivery of Controlled Substance)
Ramon Parker White, 38 (Felon in Possession of Firearm)
Joshua Michael Bowers, 27 (Possession of Controlled Substance)

Good!! This place has been crap for years. While heading to a second job I had someone that was drunk leaving there plow into me. Totaled my car, broke my collar bone and pushed me across all lanes of traffic, thru the ditch and into the parking lot on the other side of 1960. I was lucky and not seriously injured. Thanks to some great people that stopped and got his license plate number...he was caught after fleeing the scene.
