Roane Co. bar loses liquor license

HARRIMAN, Tenn. (WVLT) -- The "Grill and Pub" can no longer serve alcohol. On Tuesday, Beer Board members voted unanimously to pull its liquor license after a reportedly bartender served an minor last month.

The tavern is no stranger to controversy. In 2011, David Harvey was killed in a bar fight. His friends led the charge to pull the bar's license.

"The bar is unbelievable," said one of Harvey's friends, Vickie Davis. "Things have happened there, but in our opinion the worst was losing Dave."
