The drama surrounding the Chris Brown and Drake dustup at an NYC nightclub on Wednesday continues, although this time, the club's manager is in hot water.
According to CBS News, Jonathan Cantor — the manager of W.I.P., the SoHo club where the altercation between Brown's and Drake's crews took place — has been arrested on unrelated charges. Cantor was reportedly brought in to New York's 1st Precinct police station at about 2 a.m. Friday (June 15) after local authorities responded to noise complaints. Cantor was not held because of the noise violations, but because he had two outstanding arrest warrants against him.
Police officers were reportedly at the club conducting a routine business inspection. Cantor was issued two summons after he was found to be in violation of the fire code and against alcohol beverage control.
The club manager was arrested days after his establishment made headlines due to a violent brawl that broke out between Chris Brown and Drake's entourages. Though rumors regarding the cause of the fight pinpointed the two musicians' beef over Rihanna, new details emerged Thursday that the scuffle erupted out of trash talking between Brown and rapper Meek Mill, who was sitting at Drake's table.
The "Take Care" singer alleges that he wasn't involved because he was exiting the club at the time the fight broke out. Five people were injured in the brawl before the New York City Police Department was called in. TMZ reported that Brown and Drake were not at the club when police arrived; no arrests were made.
