State agents released a 39-page document today as part of an investigation that found the board and liquor company Diageo broke state alcohol laws at a November dinner.

The agents' report also details several other dinners and lunches for Mecklenburg board members or employees that were paid for by liquor companies. Board Chair Parks Helms and CEO Calvin McDougal went to lunch at the Ritz Carlton the day before the Nov. 18 dinner at Del Frisco's steakhouse.
