SHIVELY, Ky. (WDRB) -- Police say one man has been arrested and three people were taken to the hospital after an early morning brawl in a gentlemen's club parking lot.
Sgt. Josh Myers of the Shively Police Department said they received a call that shots had been fired shortly after the Doll House on 7th Street Road closed up for the evening at 4 a.m. 27-year-old Antwan M. Baker was arrested and charged with assault, wanton endangerment and criminal mischief after they say he ran into a person and hit half a dozen cars in a burgundy Hummer SUV.
Police say the incident started when two female patrons exited the establishment and got into a physical altercation in the parking lot. Myers said things piled up from there when several people became involved in more brawls outside of the adult club. He said both of the ladies were with large groups of people, approximately five or more a piece. Police say one of the female group members standing outside was struck by Baker.
Police say Baker hit six cars in the parking lot before he damaged the left front axle of his SUV. Myers said three people were taken to the hospital with non life-threatening injuries. Glass from shattered bottles, broken headlights/tail lights and auto parts were found outside the establishment. Myers said "due to the nature of the business" he believed it was likely alcohol was a contributing factor. Police are still trying to identify the person who opened fire in the parking lot.
Myers said officers from the Shively Police Department have gone out on several calls to the Doll House in the past. One man was shot and killed in the parking lot on Dec. 13 of last year.
