Club in Chris Brown-Drake brawl loses license
New York state authorities have suspended the liquor license of the Manhattan nightclub where Chris Brown's and Drake's entourages allegedly brawled two weeks ago.
The New York Daily News reports that the State Liquor Authority convened and emergency meeting over incidents at the W.i.P. club and its sister club Greenhouse and both had their licenses revoked.
"The SLA will not tolerate violent bars that break the law," SLA Chairman Dennis Rosen told the newspaper.
Last week the club was closed after receiving 14 code violations, including one for failing to halt the June 14 bottle-throwing brawl that injured eight clubgoers, including Brown and NBA player Tony Parker, who says he required eye surgery following the melee and is now suing the club's owners for $20 million.
The club's owners have filed a suit against the city in response to the closure, arguing that its staff were following a security protocol approved by the New York Police Department when the fight broke out.
Police are continuing to investigate the incident. Neither Chris Brown or Drake are considered suspects.
