Two sports bars in Lafayette have been shut down.

Karma's nightclub and Marley's Sports Bar and Grill have closed... at least temporarily.

Louisiana Alcohol and Tobacco Control says the two bars owed an undisclosed amount of overdue state and local taxes.

The bars' owner is former Ice Gator hockey player, Eric Cloutier, who is under a separate criminal investigation.

Cloutier goes before criminal court in October.
