Jersey County deputies who visited the Cabin Tavern in Delhi for a routine bar check found Janet Brannon busily tending bar. In her birthday suit.
As they were on duty, the officers had to arrest her. She was held on $8,000 bail for public indecency.
Even though Brannon was the sole employee working that afternoon, the county is pressing charges against the tavern as well, relying on the little-known legal theory respondeat posterior, or “let the naked bum respond.”
Pardon our attempt at legal humor.… We now return to our regular programming.
