KARK reports on disciplinary action by the Alcoholic Beverage Control Division against Ernie Biggs, a River Market club.

ABC Director Bud Roberts said the club should pay a $2,200 fine and not serve alcohol for two weeks for serving a minor and for a bouncer's rough handling of a 21-year-old customer. Specifically, the bouncer was said to have thrown the customer head-first onto a concrete sidewalk "in violation of ABC regulation."

KARK reports that the bouncer was fired.

PS: The establishment may appeal the action to the ABC Board and, failing that, to Circuit Court.

UPDATE: A disturbance at the club again this morning. Police responded to a call of a stabbing victim at a nearby parking lot. According to the report, the 20-year-old woman had  been in the club earlier and got in a fight with another woman. The incident drew quite a crowd around 1:30 a.m., according to the report.
