Most Friendly Bar in DC Makes Wheelchair Dude Sit in Corner

A Georgetown University student who is in a wheelchair says he's taking legal action against a popular bar after he was asked to leave.

Five years ago, 23-year-old Georgetown University student Taylor Price dove into an ocean wave, hit his neck on a sandbar and suffered a spinal cord injury.

"I am the same guy I was five years I just get around different," he said.

Because he's confined to a wheelchair, Price argues he was treated differently and discriminated against by popular Georgetown restaurant Mr. Smith's on M Street -- where the sign reads, "Friendliest Saloon in Town."
