Greeley, Colo. (AP) - Greeley is accustomed to being on the wrong end of snobbery. In a state that likes to brag about microbreweries and wind energy, Greeley is known mostly for its rodeo and meatpacking plant.
But two Greeley brothers say a Fort Collins bouncer went too far when he wouldn't let them in because of where they live.
Jason and Shane Jackson say the bouncer at Washington's Sports Bar and grill turned them away Saturday because people from Greeley and its neighboring town of Evans had been causing ‘gang problems.’
Jason Jackson says the bouncer told them he knew they weren't gangsters, but if he made an exception for them, he'd have to make an exception for everyone.
CBI Enterprises president and bar owner Shane Belcher says the bar is re-evaluating its policy.
