Splash, a fashionable Malibu restaurant which Los Angeles Police Chief Daryl F. Gates once alleged was a conduit for laundering drug money, has been ordered by the state Alcoholic Beverage Control Department to surrender its liquor license by May 24. ABC Director Jay Stroh said he made the decision to revoke the license "based on our independent investigation" that almost half of Splash's stock was transferred to two individuals with criminal records without his agency's knowledge.

Malibu real estate developer Tony Regan said Thursday that he will try to evict the operators of Splash restaurant in the wake of accusations by Los Angeles Police Chief Daryl F. Gates that the chic eatery is a "front" for a drug-money laundering operation.
