A Columbus woman faces accusations that she rented out a Milgen Road facility and allowed alcohol sales at a dance that teens attended early Sunday, police said.
Joia Jones, 20, is charged with no alcohol license, operating a business without a license and conducting a public dance, reports state. She made her $1,047.50 bonds the day of her arrest.
According to reports, Jones told police that she rented the Woodmen of the World facility at 4817 Milgen Road for a public dance. Young teens and people in their early 20s were admitted for the event where a hired DJ performed.
Conducting a public dance is a violation of city code. It states in part that “All public dances held in a hall for which a license has been issued, must be conducted in a manner free from behavior calculated to offend a sense of common decency or morality.”
