Lafayette Club Agrees To Improve Security
Karma Night Club and the state Office of Alcohol and Tobacco Control have come to an agreement about security improvements that mean the club will have to make several changes.
The changes are coming after the ATC investigated allegations against the club. There were allegations of alcohol being sold to minors, drug use at the club and violence.
Karma, as part of the agreement, will have to install video surveillance cameras on both the inside and the outside of the club.
The club will also be required to pick up trash around the business during and after events in addition to notifying police whenever they have an event where large crowds are expected.
Karma will also now be required to have between 8 and 15 security guards each night depending on how big the crowd is going to be.
The main alleged drug being used at the club is marijuana, and ATC Commissioner Troy Hebert says the "no smoking" policy could help address that issue.
