I got the below email today from NOPD:

(June 9, 2011)-  43 people are under arrest today after New Orleans Police and other law enforcement officials raided the Sports View Lounge at 1708 Elysian Fields last night.  The raid started at 10:45pm and wrapped up at 3:45 this morning.

43 of the bar’s customers were arrested for everything from probation violation to traffic warrants. Officers also recovered 62.1 grams of marijuana from inside the bar. The complete list of charges against the suspects is below.

29 fugitives

8 traffic warrants

2 capias warrants*

18 probation violation arrests

14 probation releases

1 municipal arrest

2 municipal warrants

1 summons

I think the lesson here is…don’t go to that bar.  Unless you’re a criminal.  In which case, DON’T GO TO THAT BAR.


*WTF is that?  Ahhh…ehow.com to the rescue.  “I didn’t know that was a thing.”
