The Johnstown Police say they have responded to at least sixty eight incidents at or around Edders Den Bar in the past eighteen months causing a financial burden to the city and hurting police manpower.  The bar was closed on Thursday by a Cambria County Judge.  This is at the request of the District Attorney.  Some neighbors have deemed it a nuisance prompting the Cambria County District Attorney's Office to file a lawsuit last week against Edward Gaywell, the owner of Edders Den.  But when asked by Gaywell's attorney, police officers said they could not tell with certainty that the bar was the source of those incidents.  In fact they admitted the fights and shootings they have responded to have happened outside the bar.
