These reports by various news outlets are categorically false.

Crescent City Connection Sports and Oyster Bar (“Crescent City”) grieve with the family of Shayla Joseph and her young child as they mourn the loss of their family members from a fatal car accident occurring on the morning of February 28, 2018. Crescent City extends its deepest condolences and sympathies to their family and friends.

Crescent City is a family-oriented and established member of the community and complies with all regulations regarding minors in its establishment. Crescent City, in accordance with all laws and regulations, does not serve and has a zero-tolerance policy regarding the provision of alcohol to minors in its establishment.

Numerous media outlets have erroneously reported that Crescent City employees provided alcohol to a minor in connection with this unfortunate and unnecessary loss of life. Further, it was also erroneously reported that the minor and her associates were leaving Crescent City before the accident. These reports by various news outlets are categorically false. No Crescent City employee provided alcohol to a minor on that night, or any other night.

This matter is still under investigation, but immediately available facts indicate that almost six (6) hours elapsed from the time Crescent City closed for the night on February 27th, 2018 to when the accident occurred at about 3:40 AM on February 28th, 2018 at another location.

Crescent City will continue to comply with all law enforcement requests for information and will update its website and social media accounts if and when more information become available.
