Bristol Palin -- Bar Controversy is 'Nacho' Problem

9/29/2010 9:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Bristol Palin already has a cheesy excuse for why she was inside a bar in Alaska last week even though she's under 21 -- and it all comes down to nachos.

A state investigator is reportedly looking into a "Dancing with the Stars" segment that 19-year-old Bristol taped inside Rumrunner's Old Towne Bar and Grill on Thursday.

But a source extremely close to Bristol tells TMZ ... "The place is also a restaurant ... so under 21 is allowed under Alaska law if accompanied by a person over 21, which she was." Bristol was with her partner Mark Ballas during the segment -- and he's 24.

And here's the rub -- our source is adamant, "Bristol had nachos only."

So far, the Alaska Department of Public Safety has no official comment on the situation.

Might be a good idea if she cuts down on eating the nachos.

That is so ridiculous to make it that big of a deal, when it's a common sense fact that if it's a bar and grill, under 21 is allowed in.

Big deal? Tons of restaurants are out there that also serve alcohol.. even big chain restaurants (TGI FRIDAYS, CHEESE CAKE FACTORY) even chain breweries like Rock Bottom have tons of customers that bring kids along. I don't see why this is even news.

Forget this story and lets talk about how hilarious it was for Sarah Palin to get booed on national TV, and then see ABC scurry and try to come up with a cover story regarding votes for the dancers.

They had the highest score of the night, yet ABC tries to tell us "the audience was mad about the scores".

Tonight they showed us the "footage" of the incident and poor Carrie Ann Inaba (spelling??) looks over at Sarah Palin when the booing starts and she looks horrified for the poor woman.

Dancing With The Stars should be classified under the "Comedy" genre next week.

You haven't a CLUE as to HOW MUCH I hate Sarah Palin......but even I could tell the audience was not booing her......not that I would have CARED.......but it didn't go down that way the way I saw it.

So, let's recap: No crime committed. No suspicion of a crime being committed. All indicators point to innocence. So... what else? ...A story on TMZ that makes it look like a crime was committed.

Are you kidding? Slow news day?

Why would the Alaska Department of Public Safety comment on "The Situation"?

What the hell did HE do?

This is NOT a news story - there's nothing here to report - a non-happening.

I so agree with you. I can't stand Sarah Palin either but, even I saw, it wasn't them booing at her. They were booing for the 8's and chanting 9 for Jennifer and Derek.

I also, was NOT going to be pro Bristol but, in her defense, she is allowed to be in a restaurant/bar as long as she's with someone over 21 and as long as they aren't serving HER alcohol...what's the big deal?!?! Maybe she should lay off the nachos but, she's surprised me the last two weeks and if she wants nachos...let the girl eat nachos! She danced her butt off and well, I couldn't do what she did and I don't like the Palins but, lay off them already. They aren't running for office, just dancing!
