Real News. Real Funny.
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?
Bathia_Mapes: 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.
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.

PreMortem: I'm sure that if she told him she would call the cops he would have made other arraingments.
hubiestubert: In Mass, we can be charged and held liable if we DON'T call. And for serving them over the limit, and letting them go, we can be held accountable in civil suits as well.Then again, Mass is full of dirty Commie Pinkos, so there is that. Taking a man's keys, it's like living in the USSR...
thermo: As a former Tavern owner in Washington State, the following statements make me cringe."I came into work, he was already there, pretty much hammered," DeVito said.and"He ordered a beer, I gave it to him, and then I started to try to slow it down, serving him," DeVito said
doglover: There is no moral or implied right, though. That's like saying the Blacksmith who made the nails that someone put into a board that you stepped on and got tetnus and died is liable.Don't support broken systems.
jaylectricity: the bar owner didn't make the alcohol
namatad: PreMortem: I'm sure that if she told him she would call the cops he would have made other arraingments.mhmmlike it is her job to deal with every rude and deadly drunk?FTA: she tried to slow down serving him ... this guy was a regularmy guess is that this guy has been a tool for a long time. she tried to stop him and slow serve him. probably tried to talk the keys out of him this time or before. my guess is that he will get off with a warning.fark em
