Former bar owner sentenced for patron's death after allowing "drinking game".

The former owner of a Kansas bar has been sentenced in the death of a customer following a reported drinking contest. The victim had a .430 blood alcohol content.

The drinking game was called "Stoplight Challenge" where those participating consume three drinks: one red, one yellow and one green. If the patron can remain coherent for thirty minutes afterward, they were refunded the $15 cost of the drinks - and awarded a free T-shirt.

The bar owner was charged with involuntary manslaughter.
