12 bouncers beat up 2 men caught on tape

Raw video.Atlantic city.Jay-Z's club bouncers may have 99 problems after being caught on tape beating two men.

Two men were brutally beaten by about a dozen bouncers at the 40/40 Club in Atlantic City this weekend. The frenzied attack was caught on tape.

New York City-based disc jockey “DJ Zeke” shot a video of what appears to be 13 staffers of the 40/40 Club kicking, beating and choking two patrons in a back parking lot early Saturday morning.

Police confirmed that the incident caught on tape is real. They responded to a call about the fight at 4:20 a.m. Saturday. Police said bouncers asked Tyrell Durant, 26, and Leonard Clark, 25, both of Neptune, N.J., to leave the club for being disorderly and when the two men gave the bouncers a hard time, the beatings ensued.

Durant later told police that club security also took his watch and money. Both men reported that they were also sprayed with a fire extinguisher by security personnel as they were taken out of the club, said police.

In the video, DJ Zeke “reports” from his couch, and then shows the footage he captured of the beatings behind the club, which is owned by famed rapper Jay-Z and his business partner Juan Perez.

“Just came back from Atlantic City; 40/40 club was jumping, but behind the scenes – in the back of 40/40 -- was a different story,” DJ Zeke says. “Jay-Z, if you see this, you will be ashamed of your security team because they’re lackluster, unprofessional, and they’re not even human.”

The video begins with bouncers kicking a man on the ground in a back lot. One of the club’s staff members then turns to punch a man who was standing to the side of the crowd and suddenly the whole crew of men in black clothes, some having the words “security” and “event staff” written on the back of their shirts, swarmed the second man, punching, restraining and choking him.

“When the cops want this shit, I’ve got this whole shit on [video],” DJ Zeke can be heard saying at the end of the video.

Police arrested Durant and Clark on charges of disorderly conduct and also collected a tape of the incident. Police said they are still investigating the incident

The 40/40 Club released a statement saying, “the 40/40 Club has no comment on the tape that is being circulated,” and claims the incident was provoked. According to police, 40/40 reported that Durant struck security officer David Gulley in the face.

“There is a police investigation ongoing. The club has been open for four years, has a great rapport with the community, and we have a very professional security staff,” the statement says. “The incident was provoked.”

    • Written like some guy who thinks its their right to bite the breasts of the dancer and gets mad at the mean ole bouncer that tosses them out.

      I have bounced before (they needed armed people at the club where I worked because of some shootouts there) and found it was a unique job.

      These thugs on the clip are not bouncers, they are just animals hired by some fool who runs the club.

      And only a fool would hire people who obviously have no training and are just a moment away at any time from More..

    • I believe that bouncers can be assholes like everyone else. I have had nights out where bouncers acted like big bad-ass wankers but I have also had some good laughs with many of them, even befriending them when I went out for a cigarette. Dont forget that they have to deal with so many people, many of them having an aggressive attitude in advance just because they are facing a bouncer and also many drunk people are acting like complete tossers. Obviously, they might treat some people in a wrong More..

  • Racist comments on LiveLeak? Shocking. I love the video content on this site, but most of the users are right-wing racist nutjobs. Don't deny it, either- the proof is just below almost every video on this site.
