Bouncers at Jay-Z’s 40/40 Club Get Hit With 14 Charges

Back in November shocking video footage leaked online of several bouncers beating down two patrons outside of Jay-Z’s 40/40 Club in Atlantic City. In the wake of public outcry, all of the security guards were subsequently fired but now the victims are fighting back.

According to the Press of Atlantic City, the two men that were assaulted—25-year-old Leonard Clark and 26-year-old Tyrell Durant—filed charges yesterday (January 11) against their nine attackers. Among the 14 charges is aggravated assault, as well as indictable assault, for spraying Clark and Durant with a fire extinguisher.

On the night of the attack, Clark was actually at the club to celebrate his birthday, before being asked to leave the venue, which escalated to a fight outside. Clark and Durant were later hit with disorderly conduct charges themselves, but as of press time there was no word on the status of those charges. —Anslem Samuel
