Bartender charged and bar cited in death of teacher
ANDERSON TOWNSHIP, Ohio (Brad Underwood) -- On Feb. 21, 51-year-old Frederick Carey was hit and killed while riding his bicycle on round bottom road.
The next day, Todd Shaw was arrested for driving drunk and hitting and killing the newlywed teacher. Now, the bar where Shaw was drinking and the bartender who served him were also charged.
Craig Glick of the Cincinnati Bartending School said, "It's a tragedy that something like that happens. I hope it's a wake-up call to bar owners to make sure that your staff is properly trained. "
In Northside, the Cincinnati Bartending School teachers students how to make a drink. More importantly they teach the students the law and how to follow it when it comes to serving patrons.
"I think the first rule of thumb is no means no when somebody comes into your bar. No, you've had too much to drink and you're not getting anymore and no you can't get in my bar without a good ID and just remember don't drink and drive," said Glick.
For bars and bartenders it's a fine line. Making money but also knowing when to stop selling. At the bartending school students get training that's on par with national standards during a five hour class.
The incident was Shaw's eighth drunken driving arrest. He was sentenced to nine and a half years in prison.
