Three undercover officers stepped into an American Fork restaurant one Friday evening, pushed aside the menus and ordered themselves a round of beer. 

Their waiter, Fidelis Osuchukwu, said he couldn’t serve drinks without a meal. But when the officers kept pressing him, Osuchukwu offered “to bring us some chips and salsa for free,” said the officers’ report. “We said OK.” 

The agents left a tip an hour and a half later, then cited Chili’s for serving alcohol without food, in violation of Utah’s liquor laws. 

“They kept saying they wouldn’t order anything but beer,” said Osuchukwu. “It didn’t seem like they were going to give in, so I brought the chips – and then I got fired.”

After reading this article and the one below about the legislative geniuses in Mississippi, you have to shake your head. If you really want to get pissed off, click on the Nanny State cover and take a look.
