A manager at one Macon club says he supports a proposal to raise the bar entry age to 21.
Macon-Bibb commissioner Scotty Shepherd wants the age limit raised to reduce fighting.
But Element Assistant Manager Elijah Davis says that's just one reason why he wants the age limit changed.
He says allowing people under 21 to enter bars creates a liability issue for the bar and ties up security, who spend a lot of time making sure no one under age drinks.
"You know you've worked all this time, had all this business set up. You had your liquor license, your business license, you've been established. You don't want that pulled out from under you," he said.
He says Club Element would raise the age on their own, but keeps it at 18 to stay competitive with neighboring bars.
