KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- Roane County law enforcement knows the Harriman Grill and Pub as the bar they get called to for drug deals, thefts, even calls that someone went missing.

Tuesday night the Pub got a second chance at a first opinion. They avoided having their beer license pulled by agreeing to some major changes.

The bar will now add security cameras to every corner of the bar. Those cameras will be recorded and Roane County deputies can watch them 24/7.

They'll also hire their own private security staff on weekends and fence in the area behind the bar, which was the location of many of the problems.

Those changes have to be finished in 30 days, or the bar will be back in front of the Beer Board.
