Cops Investigate Michael Lohan Nightclub

6/10/2010 12:35 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Someone thought it was a bad idea for a convicted felon to open a nightclub -- and that someone called the cops on a convicted felon by the name of Michael Lohan.


We broke the story ... Michael has struck a deal to become a partner of a club called Controversy, which is inside Annona restaurant in Westhampton, NY.

We're told after our story posted, someone called the cops, informing them that Lohan was a felon and could not by law have a liquor license.

We've learned a detective from Westhampton Beach Police Department paid a visit to the club yesterday, and the good news for Michael -- he's not on the liquor license.

The bad news ... the mayor tells us cops discovered there was a zoning problem that could prevent the club from opening. The restaurant owner tells TMZ ... he's working on the zoning problem but he says a portion of the restaurant is properly zoned for a club, with a little rejiggering he can get it up and running.

The "cops" as you call them do not investigate liquor license violations in Suffolk County NY. And they don't deal with zoning violations. Someone from the NYS Liquor Authority would check this out. And someone from the Building Department would deal with zoning violations. The police have better things to do.

You guys are way too ****ing obsessed with this damned family. Did Michael turn Harvey down for a blow job or something, so he has to exact revenge?

This is just a foreshadow of things to come. If Richard Rubio wants bad press and negative branding for Annona Michael DB Lohan will bring it. The reviews for the restaurant on TripAdvisor are mixed as it is, and having Lohan attached to the establishment talking out of both sides of his mouth are just are bound to turn people off.

IMO the image for WHB sunk once this announcement was made. On the upside, I look forward to all the secret tapes and videos Lohan will divulge a year from now that capture the good ppl of WHB in less then a positive light.

It was Lindsay. She is hating her daddy's club right now but wait until Samantha Ronson is their DJ.

I know in most places "cops" don't patrol liquor stuff, but here in Tucson they do. There weren't enough liquor control staff and funding for it and the duty went to the Sheriff/police force. I think it is scarey that they can patrol that and give DUI tickets in the same breath. They can come in and see if you are serving a drunk, ticket you and then wait for anyone else to come out of the bar.

Reading this I figured other places were doing the same thing. I still disagree with it and seems it would be a conflict of some sort!

I am offended by the term "re-jiggering."
