The effects of Chris Brown and Drake’s bottle-bopping showdown at W.i.P. nightclub Thursday morning continues to trickle down.

A New York Police Department spokeswoman says the New York City nightclub was shut down Saturday night because of code violations.

Though it remains unclear who did what, Chris Brown’s rep has said he was a victim of an attack while Drake’s publicist released a statement saying he never engaged in any wrongdoing. Breezy, his girlfriend Karreuche Tran and his bodyguard were among eight injured during the fight inside the club last week.

Cash Money’s head honcho Birdman also offered his two cents, saying that his YMCMB mate is not at fault. “To me, Drizzy ain’t did nothin’ wrong, he ain’t done nothin’ wrong to nobody. He’s just doin’ great music,” he told MTV News. “He’s not a reckless guy out there just wildin’ out; he’s a humble kid makin’ great music.”

Police said they were not ready to arrest the T-Dot rap star, though security was amped up at his star-studded “Club Paradise” show in Jones Beach Saturday night.

On the opposite end, Brown’s lawyer Mark Geragos has not been timid about pointing all fingers at Drake. “I have turned over evidence that it was Drake who instigated this,” he told the New York Post. “The evidence makes it clear that Chris is the victim of all this.”
