Customers jumped to the defense of their favorite hangout Tuesday. A handful of people used the public comments portion of the Topeka City Council meeting to support Deep Pockets Bar.
The bar's owner was recently arrested in an illegal gambling sting, and it's parking lot has been the scene of several criminal incidents. The council voted last week to deny its application to stay open past midnight.
The customers maintain the bar shouldn't be held liable for what happens outside its doors.
