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.

i do not have a problem with the end of bottle service;however if the establishment dose serve bottles of champange it should be one at a time. lastly, if you need a bottle of vodka to party with your friends, please stay home!

let's be honest, it's not the bottle policy that needs to be changed. Instead, they just need to ban black rappers and their posses. Isn't that really what we are all thinking???

If marijuana was legal, and all these guys were smoking that instead of pounding shots.....they would've ended up laughing their faces off and probably becoming friends.
Maybe the cops should consider THAT in their meeting today.

Great... because of the dumbass actions of two moronic, immature n*groes and their equally, if not more idiotic crew, the rest of us much face highly restrictions only to get some damn liquors at the club. Fantastic.

Seriously, congrats, Brown and Graham - you two dummies sure know how to represent your community... idiots.
