A woman has filed a complaint with the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission against  the On the Rocks Bar & Grill in far East El Paso.

That's the bar where two men attended a party before leaving the bar and dying in a car crash on Sunday morning.
A woman who told us she was at that party claims that the bar was serving the two men even though they were intoxicated and that alcohol was being served after the 2 a.m. closing time.

We spoke with the On the Rocks owner, Frank Romero, and he said, "We have deputy sheriff's working from Tuesday through Saturday. We have had deputy sheriffs working with us for over a year."
"We do not sell alcohol after 2 a.m." Romero said. "Last call is at 1:30 a.m. and I stop selling liquor at 1:45 a.m."

The TABC says it may take several weeks before they complete the investigation, we will keep you posted with the outcome.

This smacks a lot like the law suits against the tobacco companies because smokers were dying of lung cancer even after the Surgeon General had his warning printed on every tobacco product. Really?! Any death is a sad affair but let's leave the responsibility where it belongs... With the drinkers! Why didn't the woman in question offer to drive the two men home? It's always easier to blame someone else. What's next?! Are we going to have a government agency to monitor our sugar intake?!

Sound's to me like someone's trying to drum up some evidence against the club so that they may later have documentation for a civil suit. People are always trying to make a buck somehow, some way, some where! The guy that made the U-turn is responsible for his own actions and no one else is to blame!
