MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- Four Memphis police officers were injured and four people arrested after a brawl outside of a downtown club.
Memphis Police Department Deputy Chief Don Boyd told The Memphis Commercial Appeal that security inside Plush Club threw out a large crowd for fighting at around 2:30 a.m. Sunday, with the fracas continuing on the street.
Police affidavits say as many as 100 people were involved in the fight, which resulted in four officers sustaining minor injuries.
Four people face charges ranging from inciting a riot to disorderly conduct.
The club, under various incarnations, has been the site violence before, including a July 2009 shooting that wounded five and the May 1993 death of 16-year-old Darren Brewster inside the club.
