Sam's Wine & Spirits got hit by the Illinois Liquor Control Commission with a 15-count citation for violations including extortion, running an illegal warehouse and selling to other retailers, the Tribune reports. The ILCC is hoping to settle for a (big) fine, but might revoke Sam's liquor license if the case goes to court.
