NASHVILLE — Brittany Barnes’ trip to the top of the bar at Coyote Ugly Saloon didn’t have a Hollywood ending.

The college student from Lexington, Ky., has sued the Nashville saloon in federal court, claiming the nightspot’s employees should have done more to prevent her tumble from its slippery bar last year.

Barnes’ attorney, Rob Shelton, said the University of Kentucky student sustained an irreversible head injury when she fell off a slippery bar during a night on the town in Nashville last September. She is suing the company that runs the Coyote Ugly Saloon — famous for its sexy bar-dancing staff — for $500,000.
