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.

How about they just ban that wannabe Chris Brown from the city? He probably slapped a few chicks on the way out for good measure too.

These punks and thugs, morons and @$$clowns - nobodies! - who probably don't even understand table manners, don't have a clue as to what an absolute blight and disgrace they are to any group of innocent, civilized people! Just the presence of these "junior-high geniuses" brings down property values! They should not be allowed in clubs from now on!

We could only allow people to eat with spoons and drink with sippy cups, or, possibly just arrest and incarcerate those people who throw bottles in restaurants.

Gotta be PC.. bring on the sippy cups.

Instead of creating yet another big brother law because of spoiled, immature celebs--why not just BAN spoiled, immature celebs?

Maybe they should just limit the bottle size so it will be so small it won't hurt if someone throws it! Sheesh.

The much easier solution is to simply not allow black people into your club......they simply cannot manage themselves in a civilized manner.

"... to close the gap" or to close the gaping wound?

Another knee jerk reaction to one isolated incident.

A single occurrence is not an indication of a larger problem.

As if we don't have to put up with enough BS in this nanny state of NYC - can't drink soda, tax my sweets, deciding how much popcorn & milk I can drink. - Chris Brown is a FARGIN ICEHOLE. There are plenty of us who live here who don't act like animals when we go out. Can't somebody make him go away already. Stay out of NY arsehat.

First of all they all need to be banned from that club! Second those bottles clearly need to be locked up, but keeping thugish ass people out would help too.....
