RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) – The manager of a Raleigh nightclub was arrested early Monday morning after firing a gun into the air, Raleigh Police said.
According to authorities, a large fight broke out in the parking lot of the Still Life nightclub, which is located at 401 N. West St. In order to break up the fight, the manager decided to discharge his weapon into the air.
The incident happened around 12:40 a.m.
Police tell CBS North Carolina the manager was arrested and the weapon was recovered on scene.
Charles Tate Marrow, 37, of Raleigh, was arrested at the club and charged with discharging firearm in city limits and resisting public officer, according to Raleigh-Wake County CCBI records. Marrow’s employer is listed as Still Life Entertainment.
The resisting public officer charge is due to the fact that Marrow “hinder[ed] the investigation of the incident by being untruthful in his initial statements to officers who had responded [to the scene] with a crowd control call,” Raleigh Police Department Public Information Officer Jim Sughrue told CBS North Carolina.
The shots were fired as officers arrived on scene. No one was struck by the gunfire and there were no indications that anyone else discharged a firearm, police said.
