The 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.
