A fight which started on the dancefloor at Shooshh ended in a street brawl in which a teenager’s jaw was broken.
The incident began at about 3.30 am at the club in Kings Road Arches, Brighton, when a fight between two groups of men took place on the dance floor.
The fight broke up and about 15 minutes later both groups left Shoosh and made their way to the southern end of East Street near to Platinum Lace. There was then a further altercation between them during which several men were injured.
One man, an 18-year old from south east London, sustained a broken jaw for which he was treated at the Royal Sussex County Hospital and later discharged.
A 31-year old man from Saltdean was arrested later the same day and after being interviewed was bailed until 24 May while enquiries continue.
Detective Constable Steve Amner said: “We would like to speak to anyone who witnessed the fight in Shoosh and/or the fight which took place in East Street shortly afterwards.
“Please contact us via email@example.com or call us on 101, quoting serial 188 of 11/4. You can also call the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
Shooshh last week became the first Brighton nightclub to breathalyse clubbers if they appeared to be too drunk when entering, with those more than twice the drink driving limit turned away.
