Bar that Served Man Who Died in Crash Suspended

By  | 

LINCOLN, Neb. State liquor control regulators have suspended the liquor license of a Waterloo bar which served an 18-year-old man who died in a December 2012 crash.

The Nebraska Liquor Control Commission imposed a 35-day suspension for Waterloo Fire Barn Sports Bar and Grill. The commission had waited for the conclusion of criminal charges before acting.

One of the bar's owners pleaded no contest to serving a minor and serving to an intoxicated person. Amanda Heiman, a server at the bar at the time, was convicted in February of serving to a minor and sentenced to 30 days in jail.

Jacob Dickmeyer was killed in the crash. His blood-alcohol level was three times the legal limit. Investigators found he had been drinking at the bar before the accident.
