A Different Kind of Drunk Dial

Society continues to suffer from questionable company policies encouraging precisely the wrong behaviors. Bartender Twyla DeVito said she knew one of her regulars at the Shelby, Ohio, American Legion Post was too inebriated to drive home and so called police, alerting them to a potential drunk driver. An officer responded, observed the driver and arrested him when his blood-alcohol read twice the limit for presumed impairment. Two days later, DeVito was fired because, as her boss allegedly said to her, “[I]t’s bad for business to have a bartender who calls the cops.”
