EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU) -50-year-old Kevin Patterson is the owner of Double Day’s Sports Bar and Grill on London Road.

Last March, the Wisconsin Department of Health Services ordered all bars and restaurants closed, only to remain open for take-out or delivery.

One week later, the Eau Claire County Sheriff’s Office received a tip saying that Double Day’s was still operating on an “invitation only basis”.

Patterson is free on a $500 signature bond. He’s due back in court on May 18.
