Late Night Fight At Old City Bar

Knoxville (WVLT) -- Police are trying to figure out why another large fight broke out at a night club in the Old City late Saturday night.

The Knoxville Police Department has only released a few details, but 911 dispatch tells us one man was arrested at the Red Iguana on South Central Street after a fight.

The call was initiated by a KPD officer who saw the fight and called it in to dispatch himself.

The Red Iguana has had its share of troubles over the last year.

In 2006 police answered more than 150 calls there.

On October 25th 2006, six people were arrested when a gun was fired during a fight.

Two months later, Knoxville's Beer Board reviewed Red Iguana's alcohol license after the club received two citations for serving underage drinkers and another for serving an intoxicated person.

Less than two weeks ago a man was shot in the leg there, causing a chaotic scene as hundreds of people fled the club.
