More Neighborhood Bars Linked to Domestic Violence

But there is no such link with restaurants that serve alcohol, according to the researchers who examined the connection between alcohol-outlet densities and domestic violence cases in California emergency rooms between July 2005 and December 2008.

"Further research is needed to understand the mechanisms that underlie these associations," she added.

Emergency visits represent a much more serious level of domestic violence than police reports, according to Cunradi.
