• Nightclub where hotel brawl started loses occupancy license


    SOMERVILLE (FOX 25 / MyFoxBoston.com) -- The nightclub where a brawl broke out early Friday morning has lost its occupancy license.

    Somerville mayor Joseph Curtatone said a Neighborhood Impact Team determined that the occupancy license for Night Games Lounge at the Holiday Inn Express should be temporarily revoked.

    Police said the fight broke out between 10 and 12 women at about midnight. Several hundred people were inside the club at the time.

    Two women were arrested at the scene and charged with participating in an affray. One person was held for questioning.

    While police were removing people from the club, another fight broke out at a nearby Hess Station. Shots were reportedly fired at that scene, but there is no word on whether or not anyone was injured.

    It is unclear if the fight at the gas station and the hotel were related.

    The manager of the hotel released a statement Friday evening:

    We contacted Somerville police Thursday night to ask for their assistance with a fight on premises and we appreciate their quick response. We are fully cooperating with police and will not tolerate any sort of disruption of the peace on our property. We want the guests staying in our hotel and those who come to enjoy a night out with friends at our lounge to do so in a safe environment.  We apologize to our Somerville neighbors for this disturbance; this is not acceptable behavior from the city's perspective and certainly not from ours.
