Cops Start Downtown Crackdown By Closing Celebrity Training Bar
But this is just part of a pincer movement against downtown crime: NYPD also brought its crackdown to the East Village this weekend, busting Pete Wentz's bar Angels & Kings for serving underage patrons. Oh, sure, this offense looks like a victimless crime, but when Wentz' patrons stumble out of his place in their pork-pie hats, ironic footwear, and whatever they wear now instead of Ed Hardy t-shirts, they pose a great Pavlovian temptation to the mooks from Jersey who frequent the district, and are too addled to run for it. Prevention works!
We trust they'll also have undercover cops working this recipe-for-disaster.
