There isn't a specific statute regarding this issue.
If a bar has a customer that happens to fall asleep (takes a nap) at their facility, and the proprietor has no objection to it, there is no problem.
But if a bar patron were to become so intoxiated that he/she were to become unconscious in the bar, the bar owner can be liable if they were to have complications (such as airway compromise leading to asphyxiation). In which case the bar could have civil liability. In these cases it may make better business sense to contact an ambulance for the unconscious patron.
