A popular night club that was padlocked by Metro police last week for being a public nuisance will remain closed permanently.
During a hearing on Wednesday, attorneys representing business operator, Paul Eichel, and property owner, Nancy Cook, agreed to terminate the lease effective immediately.
“This is very good news for the businesses and residents around that part of the Murfreesboro Pike corridor,” Chief Steve Anderson said. “This club had negatively impacted the safety of its neighboring community for far too long and was a drain on the resources of the Hermitage Precinct.”
Police reported the night club located in the 1200 block of Murfreesboro Pike had a persistent pattern of fights, assaults and drug crimes among other law violations.
Last month, three people were injured in a shooting outside the nightclub. At least 50 shots were fired following an altercation between two groups of people inside.
