THE WOODLANDS, TX – Tomball bartender Chelsea Marie Willburn, 24, has the dubious honor of being the very first bartender busted by a special DWI task force for over-serving a customer.

Willburn was bartending at the popular ‘Baker Street Pub and Grill’ on The Woodlands Waterway, where two undercover Conroe cops allegedly saw her serving a customer who clearly needed to be cut-off.

They cut her off, instead.

Willburn is charged with a Class ‘A’ misdemeanor.

Instead of serving hard drinks, she could serve hard time–up to one year in jail and a $4,000 fine.

The bar could get a fine or have their alcohol permit suspended or canceled, according to the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Code.

Let’s just say the ‘pub’-licity doesn’t get any better for “Baker Street”.

Houston Police say three men had just left the Willowbrook Mall location after boozin’ it up when the driver lost control and crashed into a brick and metal fence. The impact killed the passenger.

Police say the driver admitted to drinking at the pub, but refused a breathalyzer test. He was taken downtown for a mandatory blood draw, and will face charges of Intoxication Manslaughter.

That’s a real buzz killer.
