T.I. May Lose License Over His Atlanta Nightclub
Rap mogul T.I. is facing losing the liquor license for his Atlanta, Georgia nightclub after city officials raised concerns about incidents of violence and disorderly conduct at the venue. The "Live Your Life" hitmaker, real name Clifford Harris, Jr., owns Club Crucial in his native Bankhead and it is regularly named as one of Atlanta's most popular hotspots.
But the hip-hop star, whose family friend Patricia Reid runs the establishment, has found himself in trouble with local authorities following six altercations involving drunk patrons. Atlanta officials wanted to have the venue's license permanently removed for what they called a "systematic failure to supervise", and they recently took their request to the city's alcohol licensing board.
Reid's attorney, Dewayne Martin, appealed the challenge and claimed the club had "a viable security plan that addresses security on site". Boardmembers refused to back the permanent ban and instead suggested fining club owners $50,000 and issuing a 30-day restriction on selling alcohol at the venue. The club's fate now rests with Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed, who is expected to make a final decision in the coming weeks.
