Probe finds no wrongdoing in Palin appearance

State investigators say they've found no violation of law by an Anchorage bar and grill related to "Dancing with the Stars" contestant Bristol Palin's appearance there last month.

Palin is 19, and the Alaska Alcoholic Beverage Control Board received several complaints about her being at Rumrunners Old Towne Bar and Grill for a performance by her dancing partner, Mark Ballas.

Law permits those under 21 to be inside such establishments if they're accompanied by a parent, spouse or legal guardian over age 21 and there to eat.

Board Director Shirley Gifford says Palin was with an older guardian, drinking only water and eating nachos and chicken strips. She says there was nothing to indicate any law was broken.
