Clarksville Police padlocked the Club Magic Nightclub at 1310 Fort Campbell Boulevard  after a local judge, acting on evidence collected during a 10-month investigation, declared the club a “public nuisance.”

The police investigation revealed a consistent pattern of fighting, gunfire, rioting among members of rival gangs, public drunkenness, and myriad wrecks in the club’s parking lot.

The temporary injunction was granted by Judge Ross Hicks of Montgomery County Civil Court  following an investigation by Capt. David Crockarell, Prevention Officer Kyle Fleming, District 1 personnel, District Attorney John Carney and Asst. District Attorney Chris Dodson, who have been fielding dozens of complaints from neighbors near or abutting the club. Activities at the club “put the neighbors at risk.”

With duct tape in hand, police posted the club with the judicial decision and installed the padlock. Anyone tampering with the notice or the locks could face jail time or fines, or both.

A hearing on the temporary in junction will be held on Friday.
