A group of bouncers accused of assaulting three customers at Jay-Z's sports bar in Atlantic City, New Jersey last year 2009 has been hit with various charges of assault. Several security guards were caught on camera in October 2009 kicking and punching Bryant Norwood, Leonard Clark and Tyrell Durant in the parking lot of the 40/40 Club after the patrons were kicked out of the venue for disorderly behavior.

The employees have since been fired from their jobs as a result of the incident, and now they are facing prosecution for their actions. According to Monmouth County Attorney Eugene Melody, two of the victims - Clark and Durant - officially pressed charges against nine bouncers on Monday, January 11, with the 14 counts ranging from assault and aggravated assault after they were sprayed with a fire extinguisher.

Norwood filed suit against the club and the bouncers involved in the case in December (09), claiming the "bullies" attacked him for "no reason" as he left the establishment. He is seeking a "substantial amount of money" from the club owners and bouncers after allegedly sustaining "diverse personal injuries" and "permanent injuries".
