Chicago Family Sues Bar Where Tank Johnson's Friend Was Shot

CHICAGO (AP) -- The family of a man shot to death in December while at a Chicago nightclub with former Chicago Bear Terry "Tank" Johnson has sued the bar's owners and operators.

The family of William Posey say Ice Bar employees served too much alcohol to 34-year-old Michael Selvie of Chicago. Selvie was later charged with Posey's murder and is being held in Cook County Jail.

The lawsuit names the Ice Bar, Anna Marie Amato, Jason Modzelewski and others as defendants.

Posey and Johnson were out together at the Ice Bar less than 48 hours after police raided Johnson's home in suburban Gurnee. Johnson was charged with gun possession without an owner identification charge. Posey, who also was living at the home, was arrested on felony drug charges.
