Bar Cited After Brawl

Six people are in jail after a brawl broke out at a Lexington nightclub.

Police were called to Main Street Live, near Main and Midland, at two this morning, for a large disorder. For a time, police blocked off part of Main Street.

No one was injured.

Police say Alcohol Beverage Control officers cited Main Street Live for the disorder.

Punishment for something like this could range from fines over one thousand dollars or the bars licence being suspended.

We talked with a manager at Main Street Live, and she said the bar did nothing wrong, but couldn't comment any further on the situation.

    It seems odd that the bar owner says that they did nothing wrong but they may receive fines over one thousand dollars and could have thier license suspended. I would like to learn more about this story.

    How come we don't here about the fights at Tolly Ho, or the guns at perkins? Also why did everyone cover up the Riot Squad being called out on the 4th of July forcing people from Rupp Arena to 3rd and Midland by foot and horses. it's not a bar the reason i believe.....

    WOW Main Street Live the worst of the worst, a thug paradise come on people.I went there several times and wactched them raise over a 1000.00 for Hospice,I've attended other events where they have raised money for other benifits. I also went to a concert and who was next to me, wow one of our past head basketball coaches. On another visit I ran into one of our former Mayors Yea really the worst of the worst. I also watched the UK game there last night and it was not the worst of the worst it was you and I. Yes it's a bar but it's also a resturant with good food and many TV's to watch a great football game.

    The thugs (white, black, or hispanic, thugs are in every shape and color) in this town have gone from bar to bar and whereever they go is a path of destruction. They could be compared to locusts. They "liked" Gambino's and in no time the thugs behavior closed it down. Then they open Mr. Cheeks and the thugs liked it. How long did it last? Again a place they like and they don't know how to act it gets closed down because they have to pull guns and fight to prove somthing. And you wonder why certain "popular Lexington clubs" change their music??? How many country bars have this same problem? I wonder if this club will go to country music for awhile. I've never been scared a gun was going to pop up at Horseshoes. I boils down to a club should be a nuetral place to where anyone (of age) can come have fun and get a safe ride home. It's no one's turf. And if someone steps on your new shoes, accept the apology! It was an accident! Don't pull your gat and threaten to pop a cap.

    i love main street live...i am not a thug but it is a paradise. it's not just thugs it is also a great college bar, every body always hates on college kids for not being diverse but main street live is the perfect venue that can house a diverse and spectacular bar crowd. there are literally 4 different bars under one roof and music ranging from hard core rap to stupid tunes played by johnathan webb. anyway keep doin what your doin main street.

    I wouldn't judge all bars by Main Street Live (A1A). That place is where the worst of the worst of Lexington reside.

    I remain convinced that any time some kind of alcohol incident occurs, we will have those who will continue to snot and whine because of the recent passage of extended alcohol sales in Lexington on Sunday.

    It doesn't matter how many days a week you sell alcohol, or where you sell it people will still find a reason to fight and to hate each other, alcohol or not. It's because people don't know how to put differences aside and learn to get along that things like this happen. You hear everyday of people hurting and killing each other when there is no alcohol involved, when it doesn't happen at bars, and it's not just one sterotype that does it. Learn to Love.

    Doesn't surpise me, I've seen them let in whoever and not even card people at the door. There are more underaged kids at this place than there are of age. Its about time someone cited them for something. I wonder why they never get cited for anything?

    The MSN article on this story said one of the arrested pulled a gun out during the incident but this story says nothing about it.
