LIVE OAK, Fla. (WTXL) - Employees say alcohol leaked into the street after more than 100 bottles "randomly fell down" in a Live Oak liquor store. 

The Live Oak Liquor Store in Suwanee County has confirmed that they had a shelf full of liquor suddenly come crashing down Wednesday morning.

Store employees confirmed that the shelf held more than 100 bottles of liquor and "randomly fell down" after a slight vibration was felt, causing liquor to spill into the street.

They are unsure if the vibration was from a neighboring business. The liquor store sits in a plaza with a Walmart and several other stores.

Employees were at the shop, alongside the owners, cleaning up all the broken bottles.

The shop is locally owned and say that if insurance does not cover the costs, that the owners will have to pay for the loss out of pocket.
