Or, use your
what a jack@ss....definitley sounds like another pompous attorney who thinks the rules don't apply to him.
Just because you are a lawyer doesn't mean you can intimidate business owners with your "lawsuits." If he had known anything about DUI defense then maybe he would know the first thing about civil law...but he doesn't! Your threats toward an ethical local business are spineless...just like you. [thumbdown]
Oh my, the big shot attorney that's been arrested for DUI TWICE and uses unethical practices to get himself and his clients that pay him big $$$ off (only the very few select cases he actually wins, which is not often at all... very few and far between) had his bubble burst . [crying][crying]. This just goes to show how irresponsible this buffoon of a person is. Sure, take your infant child out to a bar to have a few drinks (he said it himself) and drive home. Very responsible...NOT. Its only a matter of time before this idiot kills someone or his own child with his drunken, reckless behavior!
Mr. Big shot attorney that has been arrested twice for DUI and is a former shamed cop is obviously a big headed buffoon that thinks the rules don't apply to him. He obviously uses unethical practices to get himself and the clients that are willing to pay him big $$$ off the hook when the average person would be screwed. Just goes to show how irresponsible he is, going out to have a couple drinks then intending in driving WITH AN INFANT CHILD. I'm sure the next DUI is around the corner! Hopefully he doesn't kill someone.
I totally agree with the restaurant owner. No minor should be in the bar area - ever -. Had I been there having a drink in the bar area with my friends and the guy was allowed to stay - I would have left and never returned. Thank God for intelligent bar owners in this area
This story is ridiculous on so many levels. I see the establishment's view to adhere to their strict guidelines. First of all, if you give an inch to the general public, they will take a mile. If they let the infant stay, next time it could be a 2 year old, then a 5 year old, and then they could have a real problem. Getting a liquor license is difficult, and keeping it is just as hard. On the other hand, I understand the patron's point ... he had an infant. I can see how he could question the rule. HOWEVER, the patron is an attorney. He knows the law, and how difficult it can be for any establishment to get and keep a liquor license. In the end, I have to side with the restaurant. I just hope this doesn't wind up wasting our County Court's time and money. The patron is, after all, a lawyer.
I guess just because this guy is a "big shot" lawyer, he can make his own rules.Rules are rules. Grow up, Sir. Show your son, a good example.
I agree with the owner. There are policies for a reason and the law and as an attorney the guy knew that and would probably sue if they got served in that area. I would never sit down with my kids in a bar area. If they didn't like the where the seating was because of too many people they could have gone elsewhere or picked up fast food and went to their quiet home.
If the restaurant's policy is "no one under 21 in the bar area," it really can't be conditional. If you allow a five-month-old, do you allow a one-year-old, a five-year-old, etc.? There was no discrimination at all--the restaurant followed its rule.
Another self-entitled "victim". Ridiculous. This is not news. This guy SHOULD be embarrassed. Not by how he was treated, but rather by his own immature actions. Of course, people like this never think they are wrong.
Shame on this guy. And shame on this news site for wasting time reporting this moronic story.
So this lawyer thinks he is above following the rules? Its posted no one under 21 - he wants it changed to 0-2 and over 21? Who in the in their right mind thinks their child is going to sleep through a Saturday night at the Daiquiri Deck!
Just saw the story. Rules are rules. There was other seating and if you didnt want your child bothered, you shouldnt have gone to a loud bustling restaurant. I am with the owner and management on this one. Besides, I would have been an upset patron to be in the bar area with an infant.Why does this father think he doesn't have to follow the rules?
