The owners of the B.O.B. collection of restaurants and bars in Grand Rapids say they will stop appealing the 10-day long liquor license suspension from the state government.
Michigan's Liquor Control Commission imposed that suspension as punishment after a very drunk man fell to his death down a stairwell.
The statement from the B.O.B. says it still believes its bartenders had no way of knowing the man already had had a lot of booze before he started drinking there.
The statement, which can be viewed in full here at WOOD TV, says the regulation that makes bartenders responsible for knowing how much alcohol is in your system "puts enormous risk on every licensee.”
