MIN­NEAPO­LIS — Carolina Pan­thers of­fen­sive line­man Matt

Kalil is fac­ing crim­i­nal charges of sell­ing al­co­hol to a mi­nor at his Min­nesota pizza res­tau­rant, even though he wasn’t present when the trans­ac­tion oc­curred.

A charg­ing doc­u­ment says a 17-year-old server at Kalil’s Pieol­ogy Pizza in a Twin Ci­ties sub­urb sold a beer to a 19-year-old woman Oct. 26. A po­lice of­fi­cer in­ter­vened and con­tacted the gen­eral man­ager. The for­mer Min­nesota Vik­ings line­man owns Pieol­ogy Pizza fran­chis­ing rights in Min­nesota.

The charges say Kalil is re­spon­si­ble for the il­le­gal sale be­cause he’s the owner. No one else was charged in the case.

Kalil has been sum­moned to ap­pear in court Dec. 15. Kalil’s agent did not im­me­di­ately re­turn a call for com­ment. Kalil could not im­me­di­ately be reached through the Pan­thers or­ga­ni­za­tion.
