Clay County Clubs React To Crackdown

Clay County Clubs React To Crackdown

CLAY COUNTY, Fla. -- Some club owners on Wells Road said they're being targeted by the Clay County Sheriff's Office because they filed a federal complaint over an ordinance banning alcohol sales after 11 p.m.

"The sheriff's office is sitting directly across the street and are looking to pull over their patrons," said attorney Michael Yokan, who represents two of three clubs named in the ordinance.

Yokan says a recent surplus in police activity outside those clubs are not the result of an increase in crime.

"I think they're doing that to try to discourage people from going to these venues," he said. "It's very easy to pull someone over for not using a turn signal, for a tail light, for dark window tint."

That's what Club Christopher's Manager Pinckney Faison said happened to him after pulling out of the club parking lot.

"They said it was for a tag light out, but it wasn't out," Faison said.
