Key Club-Goers Get Pinched Before They Could Go Punk
By Ana Bustilloz/Special to LAistOn Saturday night, West Hollywood Sheriff deputies executed a "pro-active" sweep of parking lot partying before the D.R.I. show at the Key Club. The sweep resulted in 14 arrests and 41 citations. The deputies partnered with the Key Club to prevent another punk rock melee, like the one that occurred earlier this month.
Lt. Dave Smith says that the Key Club hired four deputies to "maintain a presence and order outside the club for this performance,” according to WeHoNews.com. In addition, Key Club security personnel kept a look-out for public drinkers and ne'er-do-wells, tipping off the deputies so they could be cited.
Though Lt. Smith praises the Key Club's efforts to curtail rowdiness, West Hollywood's city code compliance manager, Jeffrey Aubel is not impressed. He intends to recommend a six-month probation for the club at the Business License Commission's next meeting.
