JD's Tavern, about 20 miles from Springfield, Illinois, has had more than its fair share of trouble. According to one newspaper report, local law enforcement agencies were called 32 times for help during a 10-month period in 2007. "Way too much manpower has been dedicated to that one location," said Sangamon County Sheriff's Captain Jack Campbell.
