A worker at a special event in Riverhead was arrested for selling alcohol to a minor yesterday, according to Riverhead Town Police.

Police said they conducted a State Liquor Authority compliance check yesterday at the Famous Food Festival held this weekend at Tanger Outlets. The compliance check targeted the sale of alcohol to patrons under the age of 21, police said.

Brian Collins, 23, of Hicksville, who was working at the festival for Fat Boyz Burrito Bar of Bellmore, was charged with Unlawfully Dealing with a Minor in the first degree, police said.

Collins was processed and released on a desk appearance ticket, according to the report.

The Famous Food Festival was a two-day special event held at the outlet center this weekend that featured over 60 food vendors, a beer and wine garden, activities and entertainment.
