Clubbers Clash With Cops Outside Avalon Hollywood
A civilized interior; uncivilized activity outside Avalon Friday.
Cops received the old hooligans' greeting from angry douches who were shut out of a capacity club in Hollywood Friday night.
Officers called to reports of overcrowded conditions at Avalon Hollywood about midnight were met with rocks, bottles and debris, prompting them to call for backup and to suit-up in riot gear, according to ABC7 and police.
A Los Angeles fire official said inspectors went to the historic venue at 1735 N. Vine St. to check on possible overcrowding at 11 p.m.
A strange human element was on display: Folks who really wanted to get into a club (some of whom would surely have given the bouncers a $20 handshake) but would somehow rather get arrested. About 100 cops reportedly ended up at the scene near Hollywood Boulevard.
