Q If a municipal ordinance requires nightclubs to close at a certain time, may the police force closure of the business at that time if it remains open?

A While the municipal police department may not shut down the business and force persons to evacuate the business premises as a result of violating this ordinance, it may arrest persons violating a valid municipal ordinance regulating the hours of the sale of light wine and beer.
