HOUSTON — FEB 24 — Nearly two-dozen police officers responded to F Bar Houston early Friday morning to break up a fight in the parking lot. F Bar Houston is located on Tuam Street.
Houston Police describe at least 200 people were in the parking lot of the LGBT nightclub near Helena Street when multiple fights broke out.
Thursday night is the nightclub’s hip-hop night. “It was club patrons that were in the parking lot near and around the food truck,” club owner Irwin Palchick said to About News. “The club was closed, and our security was still on sight when it occurred.”
F Bar Houston’s off duty Houston Police officer, working the extra job at the club had to call for back up. An estimated 20+ officers responded to the call for help.
According to Houston Police, dozens of people fled the scene when officers started arriving. Two men were examined by paramedics for unknown injuries but were not transported to the hospital.
A witness at F Bar describes Thursday nights as very crowed. “There are so many people, all wanting to leave about 2:15 a.m. that it takes a while to get everyone out.”
Houston Police detained several people at the scene, but no arrests were made due to the district attorney’s office refusing to accept charges.
