Quality of life issues

Nothing good ever happens on Fulton Street.
New Orleans Saints quarterback Ryan Griffin recently received 50 stitches after being struck with a champagne bottle at a Central Business District club earlier this month.

Police are actively investigating the matter and have not yet made an arrest. Griffin’s lawyer, Justin Reese, said Griffin was a victim of assault and battery and did nothing to prompt the attack.

“It was a very unfortunate incident,” Reese said.

The incident occurred at Apres Lounge on Fulton Street at 1:50 a.m. June 7, according to police. Griffin bumped into some men in the bar and was then struck over the head with a bottle, causing facial lacerations.
Mostly nuisance bars down there. Someone should alert the neighborhood association.
