San Jose Wants To Close Club For Unreported Fights

SAN JOSE (AP) — San Jose officials want to shut down a troubled downtown nightclub following a New Year’s Eve brawl that went unreported.

Officials accuse security staff at Club Wet of refusing to call authorities or an ambulance after a fight left a woman with a puncture wound on her cheek from a stiletto heel and a cut inside her throat. Club staff told the woman to have her friends take her to the hospital.

This week police suspended Club Wet’s entertainment license for 30 days. It was the third time since 2009 that police pulled the club’s license after learning about unreported violence.

City Attorney Rick Doyle told the San Jose Mercury News that he’ll seek an injunction at a Jan. 24 hearing to permanently close it.

Club owner Mike Hamod denies the accusations and called the city’s account “overblown.”

    I suppose that depends upon “whose ox is gored” – or, in this case, who’s cheek gets stabbed with a stiletto (heel)…..
