A bartender was arrested for serving an intoxicated man who later went on to kill eight people during a Cowboys watch party at a Plano home in 2017.

Court records show Lindsey Glass was arrested on Tuesday and charged for violating a TABC code.

The charge stems from the night Spencer Hight was drunk on Sept. 10, 2017. He showed up to the Local Public House bar in Plano with a gun and a knife. While he was there, police say Glass served him drinks before she called police when he left the bar.

Hight then barged into his ex-wife's home, Meredith Hight, on Spring Creek Parkway and killed eight people and injured one before a police officer shot and killed him.

The victims included Anthony Michael Cross, 33, Olivia Nicole Deffner, 24, James Richard Dunlop, 29, Darryl William Hawkins, 22, Rion Christopher Morgan, 31, Myah Sade Bass, 28, and Caleb Seth Edwards, 25. Carly Shockey was the sole survivor of the shooting after she was shot in the jaw.

The victims' families are suing that bar for negligence for overserving Hight, whose blood alcohol content was four times the legal limit.

The lawsuit states that Hight was stumbling around the bar and “ran into a large picnic table on the patio hard enough to move the table. He staggered back inside and again took a seat at the bar."

According to the lawsuit, Hight pulled out this knife and a pistol at the bar. His behavior so concerning that Glass texted another employee with concerns.

Police say Glass did later follow Hight to the home and called 911 before leaving.

In a settlement with the TABC, Local Public House agreed to give up its liquor license after the shooting.

Glass faces up to a year in jail and a $500 fine for the misdemeanor charge.
