Things turned ugly at Jay-Z’s 40/40 Club over the weekend when two men found themselves caught between the knuckles of several bouncers.

Footage has leaked of an all-out brawl at the Atlantic City club, showing a group of security guards beating down two unidentified men. After the fight, the men who were jumped were arrested for disorderly conduct inside the club. According to TMZ, charges are set to be filed against the security guards, now.

A rep for the club told TMZ, “We can’t comment on the fight. We are doing our own investigation in addition to the police investigation. It’s really in the hands of the police at this point. The 40/40 club has never had anything like this happen before and we take the safety of our patrons seriously.”

Meanwhile, the club’s founder, Jay-Z, is focused on tackling another nightspot fiasco. According to The Birmingham News, the rapper and businessman is suing a small Alabama club called Club Insanity, for playing Rihanna’s “Umbrella” without having a license.

He was reportedly tipped off by agents working for ASCAP. –Linda Hobbs
