The family of a woman who died in a drunken driving accident last year in Arlington is reportedly suing the bar for serving the driver too much alcohol. The suit, filed against Cowboys Dancehall, an establishment with locations in San Antonio, Arlington and Dallas, claims that Cowboys served the man too much alcohol that he left the dancehall in an intoxicated state, and that he drove his vehicle the wrong way down Highway 287 in Grand Prairie, crashing head-on into the woman. The impact of that accident killed both parties.
According to the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission, the man’s blood alcohol content the night of the accident was nearly four times the legal limit of .08 percent. An investigating was conducted on Cowboys, but no criminal charges have been filed against the club or any other penalties imposed.
