0615_soho_chris_brown_drake_tmzThe NY City Council is calling an emergency meeting with nightclub owners and the NYPD to determine if policies regarding bottle service need to be changed in the wake of the Chris Brown vs. Drake fight.

City Council Speaker Christine C. Quinn just released a statement saying, "I am deeply concerned by reports of the bottle throwing melee that injured more than five people in SoHo this week. That is why I have immediately convened an emergency meeting next week between my office, the NYPD, and the nightlife industry."

Quinn adds, "The purpose of this meeting is to send a clear message to all nightclub patrons that bottles cannot be used as weapons and to determine if the guidelines surrounding bottle service need to be updated or reworked.”

Several people were injured in the Brown vs. Drake melee ... including an innocent female bystander who was hit in the head by a flying bottle and needed 16 stitches to close the gap.

It makes me wonder if they weren't taping for some kind of reality show, that's seems to be the weapon of choice on those type of shows.

No, what needs to happen is keep the thug ******s out of the establishments. They don't have any respect for anyone. All they are looking for is trouble the second they walk in the door.

Okay, so you have stupid people doing stupid stuff and everybody else has to pay for it? Screw that! Get those losers down to the station, charge them and make them responsible for the mess! I hope the nightclub sues both Chris and Drake.

Keeping the thugs and gangbangers out would be a better idea.

Typical overreaction. What about the usual night that ends without incident? Maybe the city council should be looking into how to keep thugs like Chris Brown, who has a violent criminal past, out of the city's establishments.

not to idiot counsel, Bottles are not the problem! Chris Brown is the problem. Are we gonna ban underwear if someone uses underwear to choke. Should we ban pens and pencils too? Where will it end? Again, Ban the thugs, not the bottles

Red Solo Cup I fill you up...

Chris Brown the cause of adults drinking from sippy cups in bars.

2012, bars have been open for 200 years in NY and C.B. and Drake bring down the industry over a stretched out over used va jay jay.
