Two bartenders will be court later this month for serving alcohol to a minor who later got into a deadly crash.
Ashley Ludwigson and Brian Schwab received citations for serving and allowing underage drinking.
Last May, 20-year-old Ryan Rubenzer was driving when his car overturned and hit two trees southeast of Bloomer.
Ludwigson's 19-year-old brother Adam and 20-year-old Kelly Hartman were passengers in the car and were killed in the crash.
Rubenzer's blood alcohol content was more than twice the legal limit. He pleaded guilty to two counts of homicide by use of a vehicle with prohibited alcohol concentration. He'll be sentenced later this month.
