ATLANTA -

One Atlanta Police officer may be in hot water for serving cold beverages without a liquor license.

Atlanta Police say Officer Damon Scott rides a motorcycle, by day, and runs the Cloud 9 Restaurant and Lounge in Castleberry Hill with his wife, by night.

According to investigators a plain clothed Atlanta Police sergeant recently brought a minor female to the night spot and both were served alcohol, but the problems don't end there. FOX 5 News learned that a closer inspection found the restaurant didn't have a liquor license and hasn't had one since 2012.

Investigators cited Officer Scott and two of the employees and Cloud 9 for their offenses. The Atlanta Police Department has launched an internal investigation. Representatives from the force would not talk about the allegations on camera but they say the 36-year-old officer has been on the force for ten years.
