Shockoe Bottom trouble free after Chris Brown concert

By Tara Morgan - bio | email

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Monday Shockoe Bottom business owners are going to sit down with city leaders to discuss the recent violence in the Bottom.

This weekend -- it's been mostly trouble-free -- thanks to a lot of police on hand for several Chris Brown after parties...

But business owners want a long term solution that doesn't mean always having to have beefed up patrols.

There are reports of just "one" arrest last night for disorderly conduct.

Saturday night into overnight Sunday, Richmond police saturated the popular night spot-- their presence later followed by street cleaning crews.

The only arrest reported apparently involved a man and Richmond's mounted patrol.

Shockoe Bottom Neighborhood Association President David Napier says the security plan was effective but still has concerns.

Napier believes a 21 and up requirement for clubs would help make the area safer.

"There are good healthy activities for those under 21 but a bar serving alchoholthose places are strictly there to serve alcohol."

Shockoe Bottom residents and business owners will meet with city leaders tomorrow night at six.

Meantime, the City Administration plans to introduce a night club ordinance at the May 24 city council meeting.
