jaylectricity: the bar owner didn't make the alcohol
Bathia_Mapes: FTA: Bartenders are prohibited from serving an intoxicated person and could be held liable for any crash or injury that results, though.Also FTA: "He said, 'I'm going to have to fire you, because it's bad for business to have a bartender that will call the cops,'" DeVito said.Someone needs to remind the bartender's former boss that it would be far worse if the drunken driver caused an accident that resulted in someone's death. The family of the deceased would have every right to sue the bar into oblivion.
PreMortem: I'm sure that if she told him she would call the cops he would have made other arraingments.
special20: Yet she HAD THE TIME to drop a dime. If I may project, as you do, then perhaps she just didn't like the guy, and schemed to hurt him because she found him personally offensive.It's possible all this had NOTHING at all to do with public safety.
cptjeff: jaylectricity: But drunk driving gets everybody's panties in a twist. Maybe for good reason. I'm not smart enough to make that determination.It kills about 10,000 people a year.And this bar needs to lose its license. The police might have a word or two with the owner about encouraging illegal behavior, and they're probably not thrilled with the whole firing people for reporting a crime thing.

A Terrible Human: I've never understood the appeal of bars. When I drink I want to get drunk,not socialize with a bunch of other drunk assholes or pay a premium for shots when I could go to a liquor store and buy my own damned bottle.
violentsalvation: WTF ever happened to personal responsibility?

davidphogan: Isn't it illegal to serve someone you know is already drunk anyway pretty much everywhere? I know at least in some states the bar owner could use that as a reason to fire her. She admitted serving an already visibly intoxicated guy more beer, why not just say that you were scared of the liability of keeping a bartender on who knowingly gave someone who was already drunk more alcohol?
