Jan. 1, 4:15 a.m. - A woman has been banned from the Franco after a New Year's fight.

According to police reports, the woman was allegedly intoxicated and a man at the club responsible for the patrons requested she leave her keys and not drive home.

At first, the woman agreed, but then she began to harass other patrons at the club.

The man requested the woman stop, at which point the woman waited until the man walked away, at which point she punched him in the back of the head four times before he reflexively struck her in the face.

This account was corroborated by several other patrons and video footage at the club.

When asked, the woman alleged she struck the man because he had been "bothering me for the last three years."

Neither party wanted to file charges for assault; the woman was issued no trespassing orders the next day.

How is it that the woman was served to intoxication? Surely there must be a shut off point. If this woman didnt leave on her own, what is the policy for her to be escorted out of the building. Stories put together by several other intoxicated people, after all it was NYE,. Shame on the Franco American Club for over serving, as they always do.

I would pay $100 (or maybe more) to see that video!

Excuse me but the Franco certainly did not over serve this person. What she may have had before she came in is not known but she was indeed denied alcohol while there. And the other person who was involved in this incident doesn't even drink. So perhaps you should consider having a complete set of facts prior to making accusations. The proper procedure for excorting anyone out of anyplace that refuses to leave is of course to call the police.
