Waterloo Bar Draws Liquor License Suspension

A Nebraska bar has received a 35-day suspension of its liquor license for serving alcohol to an 18-year-old who later died in a car crash.

The Nebraska Liquor Control Commission handed down the penalty Thursday against the Fire Barn Sports Bar and Grill in Waterloo.

The suspension came in response to the Dec. 3, 2012, death of Jacob Dickmeyer. Dickmeyer was killed in a crash after a night of heavy drinking at the bar with another underage friend.

Amanda Heiman, the waitress who served the two, was found guilty of procuring alcohol for a minor resulting in death. She was sentenced to 30 days in jail and two years of probation.

Co-owner Steve Franson says the bar plans to pay off the suspension, which is allowed under Nebraska law.
