According to the New York Post, Christopher Harris, an off-duty Correction Academy cadet, was stabbed in the eye on Saturday morning (September 29) at 1:30 a.m. following a dispute with a fellow 40/40 club goer.
Police arrested Neville Dangou, 30, who was charged with assault and criminal possession of a weapon and released on $1000 bail Saturday night.
In related news, the 40/40 Club has recently been involved in drama of the legal kind as well. In response to a lost wages lawsuit filed by former assistants Kishma Pickering and Sheron Branch, Jay-Z filed a countersuit in Manhattan federal court on August 7.
In their suit, Branch and Pickering claim lost wages and abusive treatment, but lawyers for Jay-Z and his club said that Branch abandoned her job by failing to show up for her scheduled shift. They also claim she deleted promotional videos from 40/40's YouTube and MySpace accounts, costing the club an estimated $20,000.
