Campbell River RCMP say they are investigating after fights broke out on two separate nights outside of an adult entertainment club in the city’s downtown.
On the nights of June 12 and June 13, fights transpired outside of JJ’s Pub, an adult entertainment club located on Cedar Street, according to a media release issued by the Campbell River RCMP.
The fights happened after the club had closed, while people were mingling and waiting for their rides, the release noted.
In both cases, individuals involved in the fights required services from the BC Ambulance Service.
Alcohol was clearly a factor in these altercations, Campbell River RCMP Const. Maury Tyre said in a press release. “It’s great to see establishments reopening, but apparently people need to be reminded to maintain their physical distancing and act appropriately in public especially where liquor is involved.”
As a result, the Campbell River RCMP said they are investigating the incidents. They also said they will be increasing patrols to ensure the safety of “late night revellers” and to ensure that individuals who are impaired don’t “hit the road” after closing time.
