Man hurt in nightclub fight

| 17/06/2013

crime-scene-tape.jpg(CNS): A 28-year-old George Town man was injured when he was hit with a bottle during a fight at a West Bay Road nightclub in the early hours of Monday morning. Police said that at 3:32am officers of the Uniform Support Group  of the RCIPS were in the parking lot at the Strand in the vicinity of the Elements nightclub when the man left the club with blood running down his face. As officers tried to help the man and find out what had happened, another fight broke out amongst the crowd of people who had also come out of the club. The officers eventually brought the crowd under control and managed to establish that the man had been wounded when he was hit in the face with a bottle inside the club.

He was taken to the Cayman Islands Hospital by a private vehicle before the ambulance arrived and his injury was not life threatening.

Police officers are now investigating the circumstances of the assault and are asking anyone with information that can assist with this enquiry to call George Town Police Station on 949-4222 or 9497777 or Crime Stoppers at 800(TIPS) 8477

    Is anyone surprised?  It's been the same routine for Cayman's nightclubs for decades!  Clubs seem to be allowed to admit and cater to whomever they choose.  Club owners in Cayman are allowed generous latitude to earn fistfuls of money from champagne drinking and cocaine-fueled gangsters, without having to share in any of the social responsibility when they release these people to kill people driving home drunk, shoot each other up, etc.  It is somehow society's problem to fix their customers they release into our community in this way.  I would propose that if you're going to specialize in that industry, and in customers with a propensity to misbehave, then the club owners themselves should be made to bear some of the responsibility and costs for having uniformed police in their parking areas after midnight.  We all know which clubs I'm talking about.  A few hundred bucks a night from the till so none of the neighbours will have to clean blood off their store fronts the next morning.

    I have to say the comments about dress codes were entertaining.  I think the best solution is to only go to the most expensive places, like the Ritz and the Camana Bay.  The ruffians don't seem to be an issue there.

      Yeah like the people who shot at the police who were seen at your stinking dartville moments before. Go to hell you pathetic plastic inflammatory trollop. You are representative of everything that is wrong with this country and continues to destroy it.

        Thanks for your kind words, sweetie.  Your description of me will be a nice ice-breaker for cocktail hour tonight.

      I don't think anyone has been fatally shot, glassed or stabbed at either of these places.

      Therefore, it is only logic that people will advise going to where statistically, there is less risk.

      Therefore, I agree with the comment.

    Poster 12:39 dress codes does not help mind sets , it’s a little saying , a drunken mind reveals what a sober mind conceals , and some of these people are already trouble makers alcohol just magnifies that behavior so they could come in a armani suit and Prada shoes and nothing changes.

      rubbish …. all these muppetts are dressed the same….

      the only way to find the solution is to be honest about the problem….. and the problem for caymanian youth is the idiotic gangster culture/mentality that they idolise…..

      parents need to step up and weed this behaviour out from their kids….

      True, but your appearance does say alot about your demeanor and the respect that you have for yourself and others. I don't judge books by their covers but if you wanted someone to like your book in the first place and if you had put much thought into the book the appearance shouldn't and wouldn't be a huge issue. That's what i believe…

      If you do appear to look like a ruffian and a trouble maker ( e.g. baggy jeans (which btw is known to conceal weapons as I have come into contact with aquaintances who only wear clothing like this to conceal weapons for 'safety")).

      Also Elements is becoming filled with this kind of crowd since recent i know i used to go there and since last year Nov i have yet to show my face in there as often as i did. I remember there was an altercation almost every other weekend…bottle throwing, fist swinging. It was just immature and unconsiderate behavior. I almost got involved in one of the incidents as a bottle flew across my face.

      This is just unacceptable behavior in general. No excuse is needed for it! What Cayman needs is less tolerance and more dress code rules and the clubs need better management. They send the fighters outside to deal with their issues what they need to do is call the police and tell them to leave the premises.

    its not the management or strange bar laws or the glass that hurt that man. Its the person who threw it.

      That's ignorant if you ask me because where there is no rules and control there is chaos and trust me elements is alot of chaos.

    Wow – fighy outside at 3:32am…

    I have a solution – Whn not let the clubs close at 4 or 5am..

    Surely that would allow a "Cooling Off" period for clients who have had several drinks over the limit.


    (Ie. The conflicted Liguor Board has ruined entertainment, and the Cayman way of life, with these extended club hours – for the same ridiculous reason as stated above – but then again, cash talks )

      Actually i think you need to get your information right. Not trying to be rude but this club in particular closes at 3 the latest on weekdays or special events/parties etc and at 12 on Saturdays.

      The time isn't the issue it's the management and the constraints given to the individuals who behave like this. They arebound to be repeat offenders if no one is giving them more rules and regulations and code conduct within the club.

    Obviously, this is not good. Reading it with a visiting friend who was considering supporting one of the local clubs. Just changed his mind.

    Here's a thought. Pour drinks into a plastic cup when serving to these punks who can't control themselves. Take the weapon out of their hands and maybe this will prevent another incident like this. It's not the first time this has happened at this club. I assume security does its job when it searches people entering the club but then the club arms them with glass bottles for them to fight with. Makes sense to me…
