    Norway - Leif Nilsen, 34, dies of alcohol poisoning, Vikersund, May 2004

    A 32-year-old Norwegian bartender was sentenced to six months in prison Wednesday for serving a customer so much tequila that he fell into a coma and died. According to a district court in the southwestern city of Hokksund the bartender, whose name was withheld, pleaded guilty to serving 34-year-old Leif Henning Nilsen 19 shots of the strong Mexican liquor in 90 minutes at the Spiseriet restaurant in May 2004.

    Nilsen lost consciousness and died three days later.

    The court said it could not hold the bartender accountable for the death itself, but sentenced him to prison for illegally serving alcohol to a clearly intoxicated person.

    Before I read it, I thought well he didn't pour it down his throat but after reading 19 shots - I think they are legit in their charges!
