W.i.P in SoHo was closed for business by the local police after a massive fight broke on Thursday, June 14 morning.
While the case is yet resolved, New York City Police Department has decided to close down the SoHo nightclub for code violations. W.i.P was shut down three days after Chris Brown, Drake and their respective entourage allegedly caused a mass fight that injured five people including Brown himself.
The NYPD officers declined to explain why the club was shut down on Saturday, June 16. But they have also arrested manager of the venue, Jonathan Cantor, on unrelated charges. Turns out Cantor has two outstanding arrest warrants against him which were found out when the police were doing regular business investigation of the club. He was held for violation of the fire code and against alcohol beverage control.
Meanwhile the fallout continues with Drake addressing the incident during his Saturday night concert at Jones Beach. He told the crowd, "When I woke up this morning, I had to think about a lot of things. But the only thing I gave a f**k about was that I was in New York City tonight."
Brown, who has been said very cooperative to the police during the investigation, has slammed the media via Twitter. "It's really sad! All y'all in that office sit behind a desk and hide behind ur lives by trying to tarnish others! Good game!" he wrote.
