Investigators said the restaurant violated state law by serving him a total of 17 shots of liquor within a four-hour period.
"It's against the law in North Carolina to knowingly sell to an intoxicated patron," said Michael Crowley, chief of Mecklenburg County Alcohol Beverage Control.
State officials said Wild Wing Cafe has signed a settlement agreement that states the restaurant will lose its liquor license for 10 days or pay a $1,000 fine. The ABC Commission will vote Wednesday to ratify that agreement.
Crowley said he's investigating more restaurants and bars accused of over-serving customers. There have been seven cases in the past year and a half.
"There's a lot more in Charlotte. It's growing. There's a lot more establishments," Crowley said.
WSOC-TV investigated and learned the same Wild Wing Cafe was in trouble in 2004 after a 17-year-old was able to purchase alcohol and then died in a crash.
WSOC-TV stopped by the restaurant on Tuesday but management wouldn't comment.
