Maimi Night Club Shuts down
The city of Miami Beach shut down a nightclub on Friday after video surfaced showing a woman in a bikini riding a spooked horse into a crowd of people.
The incident happened at the Mokai Lounge sometime between Wednesday evening and the early morning hours of Thursday, according to a city document obtained by HuffPost.
Attendees at the event recorded the commotion and posted footage to social media. One video showed a man trying to pull the seemingly resistant horse into the club as a man and woman ride on top of the animal. A second video shows the woman on the horse amid a tightly packed crowd of people. The horse throws the woman off before slowly walking through the crowd as people cheer.
City Manager Jimmy Morales revoked the club’s business license on Friday citing the incident as being a hazard to public safety and possible animal cruelty. Mayor of Miami Beach Dan Gelber also said what happened “could only be described as insane stupidity and irresponsibility,”
