ATLANTIC CITY — Two men have filed charges against several bouncers in connection with an alleged beating incident caught on tape outside the 40/40 Club.
Monmouth County attorney Eugene Melody said Monday night that his clients are pressing charges against nine men working at the club co-owned by rapper Jay-Z.
The incident drew attention after DJ Zeke captured the scene on his cell phone early Nov. 29, and posted it on YouTube. It starts with Leonard Clark, 25, on the ground, surrounded by several men dressed in dark pants and black shirts. At least two of the men kick him. Then, Tyrell Durant, 26, punches one of the guards, who falls into a car, turning the group on Durant. The men — several with “security” visible on their shirts — surround Durant, who suffers several blows to the head.
Durant and Clark filed 14 complaints against nine workers, police confirmed. Those include indictable charges of aggravated assault against Larrell Johnson, of Absecon, whom they accuse of spraying them with a fire extinguisher.
