Here’s one problem I have not heard of in Stockton: drunken bartending.
A government committe in in Wasau, Wisconsin, has proposed restricting bartenders to and supervisors to have a 0.04 percent blood-alcohol level.
“We, on a regular basis, run in to situations at taverns where there’s a fight or there’s some kind of conflict and the bartender is intoxicated,” the local police chief said.
The chief did not way whether drunken bartending causes the problem or makes it worse. Or whether the darned bartender is just drunk.
Said a bar owner, “… to have the government stick their nose in and say they can’t drink at all, basically, is terrible.”
