Authorities arrest nine people at Scott County nightclub

Tuesday, February 28, 2006

Nine people were arrested and charged over the weekend for peace disturbance and assault at a nightclub near Sikeston, Mo.

Around 12:35 a.m. Sunday, a Scott County sheriff's sergeant was checking on a large gathering at Mr. C's Night Club, on U.S. 61 north of Sikeston, according to a Scott County Sheriff's Department news release.

A fight in the crowd broke out, and while the sergeant investigated the disturbance, a second fight broke out, the department reported.

According to release, the sheriff's department makes routine checks on Mr. C's when there are large crowds, as a homicide occurred in 2004 during a similar disturbance.

Order was restored with the help of Sikeston Department of Public Safety and the Missouri State Highway Patrol; nine people were arrested.
