“Over 200 patrons from the establishment exited the location, and a large fight then started on the sidewalk and quickly spread out onto Georgia Avenue, NW”

From MPD:

“On January 17, 2015, at approximately 1:30 A.M., a large fight erupted inside of 5123 Georgia Avenue, N.W. (Trinidad and Tobago Association/ Clubhouse DC). Over 200 patrons from the establishment exited the location, and a large fight then started on the sidewalk and quickly spread out onto Georgia Avenue, N.W. When police units from the Fourth District arrived on the scene moments later, the individuals involved in the fight dispersed and fled the scene. Due to the large number of disorderly subjects who remained in the street, Georgia Avenue was briefly closed in both directions between Ingraham Street and Jefferson Street, N.W.

After MPD units were able to move the crowd out of the street and ensure it was safe to do so, Georgia Avenue was re-opened. An investigation revealed that one patron was seriously injured inside of the club when he was struck in the face with a bottle. The patron was transported to a local area hospital for treatment of his injuries.

The investigation of this criminal offense is on-going. Suspect information is not available at this time. Anyone with information about this case is asked to call the Metropolitan Police Department at (202) 727-9099. Additionally, anonymous information may be submitted to the department’s TEXT TIP LINE by text messaging 50411.”


“The Club House aka Trinidad and Tobago Association at 5123 Georgia Avenue NW has been temporarily closed by Chief Lanier based on an assault and allegations of underaged patrons consuming alcohol on the premises. An ABRA hearing has been requested.”
