Four La Salle businesses were accused of serving minors after a check by the Illinois Liquor Control Commission Tuesday. The businesses that failed the test include the Shell Station at Third and Joliet Street, Lucky 7 Slots, Waz’s Bar and Grill and Monari’s 101.

19 businesses in La Salle and Oglesby passed the test, including several that had been busted before.
