Security guards at Jay-Z’s 40/40 Club in Atlantic City, New Jersey are facing assault charges after a wild altercation took place at the popular sports bar on Saturday (November 28th).
According to club managers, two men from New Jersey began causing trouble inside of the nightclub, scuffling with bouncers, before being thrown out.
The altercation spilled outside where it was video taped by DJ Zeke, who was celebrating his 25th birthday at the sports bar.
The shocking videotape captures the bouncers kicking punching, and striking two men identified as Tyrell Durant and Leonard Clark.
The brutal clip starts with as many as 10 men punching and striking Clark, who is already on the ground when Durant attempts to intervene.
The group of bloodthirsty men immediately swarm Durant and proceed to assault him as well.
Durant is struck several times in the face and head during the altercation, even though he is clearly subdued by the bouncers, who were in control of the situation at that point.
Even as Durant is subdued, bouncers can be heard yelling “put him down! put him down! [knock him out].”
To add insult to injury, Durant had to be treated at the scene by an ambulance after the rabid security guards sprayed him with a fire extinguisher, before making off with his watch and an undisclosed amount of money.
The manager of the 40/40 Club filed complains against Durant and Clark, who were initially charged with disorderly conduct.
Those charges were later dropped after Atlantic City Police saw a copy of the clip.
Police are seeking the public’s help in identifying the security guards who were involved in the vicious attack on Clark and Durant.
