Ames re-examining 'restaurant' exemption for bars

AMES (KWWL) -- Ames is considering another look at an ordinance allowing patrons of any age to get into bars, if at least half the revenue is from food.

The move follows the death of a 19-year-old Iowa State University student.  

She was hit by a train following a night of drinking in April.

The police department says it doesn't want to hurt a place's food business, but some Ames-area establishments operate as restaurants then turn into bars after certain hours.
