Connecticut Casino Boosts Efforts to Curb DUI Deaths

May 4, 2009

Following two recent fatal accidents, the Mohegan Sun casino is increasing its effort to spot gamblers who may be drunk.

The casino president says Mohegan Sun is expanding its alcohol-related employee training program and beginning an awareness campaign.

Mitchell Etess says 800 people in the table gaming department are receiving training to identify intoxicated customers. Etess says drink servers are limiting patrons to two drinks, rather than three.

On April 5 a Lisbon man was charged with manslaughter in a fatal accident on Interstate 395 in Norwich.

That accident came less than a month after police charged Daniel Musser of Groton in the death of a Connecticut College student on I-395.
