$14 million was awarded to the family of a 7-year old boy who was left a paraplegic after being hit by a drunk driver when Hawkeye Kinkaid drove away from the Bellingham Moose Lodge with a blood alcohol content of about 0.32. Under state law, bartenders who serve visibly intoxicated customers are liable for damages to potential victims. Kinkaid’s girlfriend, Alexis Chapman, was a bartender at the lodge and served him the night of the accident. In statements to others, Chapman said Kinkaid was too “tipsy” to be driving and that he was so drunk that night that she eventually refused to serve him.
