Man Falls at The B.O.B. – 5.13.13GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — A popular downtown venue is facing state charges after a man fell to his death in May.

The B.O.B. is facing three charges from the Michigan Liquor Control Commission in the death of Kevin O’Brien: selling to an intoxicated person, allowing an intoxicated person to consume more alcohol and allowing him to loiter.

O’Brien, 36, is one of three people who have fallen to their death at The B.O.B. in the past four years.  He fell four stories in an interior stairwell May 12 and died the next day.

In April, 21-year-old CMU student Zachary Bunting also fell down an interior stairwell and died.
