A slew of criminal charges were filed this week against the owners of businesses that LA City Attorney Mike Feuer says are underground nightclubs and an unlicensed casino, all operating near the Hollywood Forever Cemetery.
Feuer said he has filed 17 criminal charges against the owners of the businesses. If convicted, the owners face thousands of dollars in fines and jail time.
“No Angeleno should be forced to contend with a noisy, unlicensed nightclub right next door,” Feuer said. “The people who are behind these clubs have put their customers and people in the surrounding community at risk.”
One of the locations, 800 N. El Centro Ave., began generating complaints to the LAPD in August. Officers who responded to the area reported seeing a large party with a cover charge, DJ’s playing loud music, and alcohol sales before they broke it up, arrested several people and confiscated guns. The LAPD was called back to the location on Aug. 29 after a person was shot there.
