A New Year's Eve party at Bay Ridge's 93 Lounge turned into madness after drunken fight spilled out into the street in the early hours of the morning. Things went from bad to worse when a man began mowing others down with his vehicle. Police say that Charles Amado, 34, climbed into his 2012 Acura and threw it into reverse, injuring four people.
Witness Deoneicia Davis says there was "blood everywhere," and two men and two women, all in their 20s, were transported to Lutheran Medical Center. Another witness told the New York Post that Amado "hit them like bowling pins." Three of the victims are in stable condition, but a 29-year-old man is said to be critical condition.
The club has reportedly been an issue in the typically quiet community, as plans to have the club shut down have been a hot topic at community board meetings. In October, residents say they heard gun shots and there have been numerous complains of people smoking marijuana and crack at "all hours" of the night.
