I've been working in bars and restaurants my whole life and almost every time I've tried to cut someone off (which is rare), my boss has tried to talk me out of it. It's a super tricky thing to do if a manager isn't going to back you up, so usually I'll just start ignoring the drunk person until they seem more normal. If they're that drunk that I'm uncomfortable serving them, they're not going to remember that they got shitty service.

I think this bartender is being made an example of, unfortunately, and I hope it doesn't ruin her life. Keith is right. Bartenders see some crazy shit and they're no more responsible for a drunk person's actions than the manufacturer of the gun or knife he used to kill those people.
