DRUG DEALERS AND KILLERS STRIKE YETTTTT AGAIN!!!
One local DJ will have to find another source of income to “feed his family” after the North Carolina ABC Commission suspended the permits of the Cave Gentlemen Club in Jacksonville Friday.
The suspension came after statements from witnesses and Jacksonville Police investigation following a deadly shooting at the club on December 22, 2017.
The Cave Gentlemen Club has a history of violent activity since spring of 2016, according to police.
There have been reports of shots fired, fights, gambling, and drugs at the club. The business has been permitted since 2001 but the lack of security and rules from the club because of the violent history and recent shooting, the permits were pulled IMMEDIATELY.
The owner of the Cave Gentlemen Club Amy Sylvain said in a Facebook post-Friday, “I apoigize to the family of Mr Bailey and the situation that has happened there wasn’t an altercation in the bar to give us any sign of anything bad was going to happen we are trying really hard to get to the root of the situation Mrs. Stafford.”
After the night of the deadly shooting of Tyrone BaileyDecember 22, 2017, Sylvain did not address the shooting, yet waited until her permits pulled from the State of North Carolina Friday to care for Bailey and his family.
“We appreciate our partnership with the ABC Commission and the state’s Alcohol Law Enforcement,” Jacksonville Police Chief, Mike Yaniero said. “The Jacksonville Police Department is committed to working with our partners to prevent violence,” he continued.
Eric Blackwell known as “Dj Blaq” is the club’s promoter. He also took to Facebook to vent about the suspended permits although his “money” allegedly doesn’t come from the bar.
First thing, theres no liquor at the Afterparty anyway so that’s definitely still happenin saturday and on New years. Second thing, things WILL be handled. Mark my words. Third thing, I wonder why the news doesnt make a story when a club OPENS the same way they do when somethin bad happens. Fourth thing, odd that they waited til midafternoon on friday of NYE weekend to do that sht. Certainly a hell of a coincidence huh. Fifth and final thing. Im so shocked to see so many people share that bad news so damn fast and aint never shared not one flyer. smh. thats Ms Amy BUSINESS man. thats how she feed her family and people was sooooooo excited to spread that. Im not worried about me. I got several sources of income besides this club stuff but this all she got. How do you CELEBRATE that? smh. People never cease to amaze me.”
After the December 22, 2017 shooting at the Cave Gentlemen Club, “DJ Blaq” made it known that what happened wasn’t none of “their” business and that “On the other hand, business has to continue and familes need to be fed so with the utmost humility and respect I am going to say that we are open tonight and Red Nixon party is still on for tonight,” he said in a Facebook post December 22 afternoon.
News In Onslow published a poll asking the community if they think “The Cave Strip Club should be shut-down” and 54% said “YES” and 46% said “NO.”
It looks like Amy Sylvain and her family will be pulling a chair up to “DJ Blaq’s” and his family table to “eat” since she will no longer be making a living off the club’s bar.
Friday, the suspension became immediate and remains in effect until the Office of Administrative Hearings hears the case.
The action is authorized under N.C. General Statute 150B-3(c), which states: “The proceedings shall be promptly commenced and determined.”
