Video: Bouncers Beat Down 2 club patrons at Jay-Z’s Club

Mon, Nov 30, 2009


Two men were brutally beaten by about a dozen bouncers at the 40/40 Club in Atlantic City this weekend. The frenzied attack was caught on tape.

New York City-based disc jockey “DJ Zeke” shot a video of what appears to be 13 staffers of the 40/40 Club kicking, beating and choking two patrons in a back parking lot early Saturday morning.

Police confirmed that the incident caught on tape is real. They responded to a call about the fight at 4:20 a.m. Saturday. Police said bouncers asked Tyrell Durant, 26, and Leonard Clark, 25, both of Neptune, N.J., to leave the club for being disorderly and when the two men gave the bouncers a hard time, the beatings ensued.

Durant later told police that club security also took his watch and money. Both men reported that they were also sprayed with a fire extinguisher by security personnel as they were taken out of the club, said police.

In the video, DJ Zeke “reports” from his couch, and then shows the footage he captured of the beatings behind the club, which is owned by famed rapper Jay-Z and his business partner Juan Perez.

“Just came back from Atlantic City; 40/40 club was jumping, but behind the scenes – in the back of 40/40 — was a different story,” DJ Zeke says. “Jay-Z, if you see this, you will be ashamed of your security team because they’re lackluster, unprofessional, and they’re not even human.”

The video begins with bouncers kicking a man on the ground in a back lot. One of the club’s staff members then turns to punch a man who was standing to the side of the crowd and suddenly the whole crew of men in black clothes, some having the words “security” and “event staff” written on the back of their shirts, swarmed the second man, punching, restraining and choking him.

“When the cops want this shit, I’ve got this whole shit on ,” DJ Zeke can be heard saying at the end of the video.

Police arrested Durant and Clark on charges of disorderly conduct and also collected a tape of the incident. Police said they are still investigating the incident

The 40/40 Club released a statement saying, “the 40/40 Club has no comment on the tape that is being circulated,” and claims the incident was provoked. According to police, 40/40 reported that Durant struck security officer David Gulley in the face.

“There is a police investigation ongoing. The club has been open for four years, has a great rapport with the community, and we have a very professional security staff,” the statement says. “The incident was provoked.

  6. Hi everyone, I’d like to know if anyone has a suggestion about a good town for me to get work as a stripper. I just got laid off and I am willing to pretty much move anywhere if I can get a job there at a good strip club and make some decent money. I am 24 years old and have a really tight body. Anyone have any suggestions about good strip clubs to dance at?
