(A) Prohibited sales and transfers. No licensee, nor any officer, associate, member, representative, agent or employee of such licensee, shall sell, give or deliver alcoholic liquor to any person under the age of 21 years, or to any intoxicated person or to any person known by him or her to be under a legal disability or in need of mental treatment. No person, after purchasing or otherwise obtaining alcoholic liquor, shall sell, give or deliver such alcoholic liquor to another person under the age of 21 years, except in the performance of a legitimate religious ceremony or service.
(B) Identification requirements. If a licensee or his or her agents or employees believe or have reason to believe that the sale or delivery of any alcoholic liquor is prohibited under this chapter because of the age of the prospective recipient, he, she or it shall, before making such sale or delivery, demand presentation of some form of positive identification which contains proof of the recipient’s age and is issued by a public official in the performance of his or her official duties. If the prospective recipient cannot produce such identification, or what the licensee reasonably believes to be such identification, the licensee shall not sell or give alcoholic liquor to such person.
