“I believe the police are building a case against Drake and his thugs,” Geragos told the New York Post. “Clearly, Drake was the instigator, and there is evidence he threw glassware.” Meanwhile, the fall out continues over the brawl at W.i.P., which left one concertgoer with 16 stitches in her head. NBA star Tony Parker was injured in the incident, as well as Chris Brown bodyguard Big Pat injured attendee has said that she already plans on filing a lawsuit against both parties, due to injuries she sustained in the massive fight.
Chris Brown is not out of the clear as of yet either. Authorities are investigating if one of the men in his entourage was a Crip gang member. If so, Brown would have violated his probation, as he is barred from associating with gang members. Police are also investigating if a gunshot was fired in the club during the brawl.
The New York City Council is also 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 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.”
