Pine Bluff rejects earlier closing times for clubs

August 6, 2013

PINE BLUFF— Pine Bluff leaders have rejected a proposal calling for earlier closing times for bars and clubs in the city.

The measure was sponsored by Mayor Debe Hollingsworth and aldermen Bill Brumett and Wayne Easterly. The three say earlier closing times would reduce crime.
