Chris Brown and Drake Bar Fight Fallout: NYC Nightclub May Be Shut Down
According to the NY Post, the State Liquor Authority has filed a total of 14 charges against club W.i.P and the Greenhouse club where it’s located. The alleged offenses include not stopping the Brown/Drake melee, plus seven other charges for other fights, noise violations and even two drug-related incidents.
“They’re absolutely in jeopardy of losing their licenses,” SLA spokesman William Crowley told the Post.
This isn’t the first time W.i.P and Greenhouse have run into trouble.
The clubs have previously been charged with selling alcohol to minors, violating noise and fire ordinances, and having an unlicensed security guard on site. And those charges — added to the hip-hop fracas — don’t bode well for the clubs.
Said Crowley: “That comes into play when we’re looking at taking action.”
Drake and Brown’s altercation took place on June 14, when the two stars – and their posses – allegedly began an argument over pop star Rihanna. Before long, tempers flared and bottles flew, leaving 23-year-old Brown with a cut chin and at least eight others injured.
Among them: NBA star Tony Parker, aka Eva Longoria’s ex-husband, who last week filed a $20 million lawsuit against W.i.P. Parker, 30, says he suffered lacerations to his cornea allegedly caused by shards of broken glass.
