Law makes bars responsible for fights

Posted:

DES MOINES (KWWL) - Nine of Iowa's biggest cities are seeking a state law to hold bar owners more responsible for crimes in parking lots or other nearby areas.

The cities backing the plan are Ames, Cedar Rapids, Council Bluffs, Davenport, Des Moines, Dubuque, Iowa City, Sioux City and West Des Moines.

A proposal that will go before the Iowa Legislature could also be a tool for cities to go after licenses of those who knowingly over-serve customers who wind up in fights.
