KENOSHA (WITI) -- Kenosha Alderman Kevin Mathewson and about a hundred of his constituents have had it with Big Shotz Sports Bar & Lounge on Roosevelt Rd.
"Calls for fights disturbances public urination those types of things and they're just, they're not going away," said Mathewson.
Residents have circulated a petition seeking to suspend or revoke the bar's cabaret license. Mathewson says that license allows the establishment to have live music and entertainment.
"These rough crowds, violent people, that when they drink they make poor decisions, kind of follow this DJ around," said Mathewson.
FOX6 News spoke with Big Shotz owner Kurt Streck. He says the violence almost always takes place outside the bar. Regardless of where it happens, Streck doesn't want it happening at all. He says he's taken steps to curb it.
"We did have a hip hop DJ on Saturdays who has since been terminated. He was bringing in a lot of bad element here admittedly. So once we realized that, we made some changes to try to stop that. We've hired additional security, been more restrictive at the door," said Streck.
Streck says losing the cabaret license could force his bar to shutter for good. For now, he says he'd be happy to have any petition signers come into his business and see the changes he's making.
As for the push to suspend or revoke the cabaret license, Alderman Mathewson says the council could take action in the next month or two.
