They take that 'don't drink and drive' stuff seriously at Barton's Boozery, a neighborhood bar in the 7000 block of West Military on the city's west side.
1200 WOAI news reports that about 2 this morning, a 'clearly intoxicated' patron attempted to get into his car to drive home.
But the bartender took the man's keys.
Detectives say the patron pulled a gun and began threatening the bartender.
Bad move. The bartender had his own gun...and he was sober. The patron was pronounced dead at the scene.
The bartender shot the 42 year old patron one time. Police don't expect charges to be filed in the case.
