The Kenosha Common Council has concured with its License and Permit Committee to revoke the cabaret license for MVP Sports Bar. That was the site of a shooting which left a man critically injured with crowds so large that officers from multiple jurisdictions had to be called to help contain the scene. Bar manager Darnell Rann told the council that the establishment is willing to make security changes.
13th district alderman Curt Wilson urged the council to go along with the committee’s decision.
In the end the council voted 14-0 to revoke the license. In a similar case that involves Red Zone Bar on Sheridan Road, the council voted 8-6 to approve their cabaret license, in part because of the so-called “action plan” by the bar’s owners to deal with overcrowding and violence.
That approval comes despite fights that happened outside the bar Saturday morning. 24 year old Tevin Hoskins allegedly punched a security guard at Red Zone who was knocked unconscious around 1:20 AM, near the 48-hundred block of Sheridan Road. Hoskins faces substantial battery charges.
A second fight broke out between two women at the scene in which a suspect allegedly head butted an officer. 32 year old Robin Tennin faces battery to an officer charges. Police say a large crowd was at the bar and an extensive police response was needed to control the scene.
