Violent bar fight in Providence leads to arrest and license hearing
A Providence bar faces losing two of its licenses after a fight involving bottles, chairs and fists broke out on Sunday night, The Boston Globe reported.
A video posted to Facebook on Monday shows a chaotic scene at Mi Sueno Disco Bar. Men and women can be seen hitting each other with chairs and fists, as well as throwing bottles, all over the dance club.
Meanwhile, the bar lights are on, music plays over screaming patrons, and tables are covered in food, hookahs, and bottles.
WJAR reported that 20-year-old Alexander Burgos Cerda of Providence was arrested at the bar Sunday night after police found a gun in his fanny pack. Cerda was charged with having an unlicensed firearm and appeared in court on Monday, the news station reported.
Other videos from that night show patrons helping clean up the bar after the fight.
The World reported that a bar hearing is scheduled with the Providence Board of Licenses for Wednesday. The council will discuss the incidents on Saturday and Sunday and whether the bar should have its liquor and entertainment licenses suspended, the newspaper wrote.
The World reported that a board spokesperson said there had been reports of music from establishments in the bar area that could be felt for blocks away.
WJAR also reported that neighbors say the music from the bar is often so loud it drowns out their TVs. In 2015, GoLocalProv reported that a neighbor filed a noise complaint with the city about the bar.
Mi Sueno Disco has voluntarily closed until Wednesday, the World reported.
