Police in Lawrence, Kansas, believed a local bar was serving booze after legal hours. But when an officer went to Conroy's, he didn't find anyone drinking. He found bartender Tiffany Hunter enjoying a cigarette with another employee and a couple of friends. That was a violation of the local smoking ban, so the cop cited Hunter, who now faces a maximum fine of $100. Hunter notes that when the law was passed, supporters said it would protect employees, but she isn't clear how the law protects her or the other employee who was present, who is also a smoker.
