ONLY ON 3: Neighbors complain about dangers from bar

Thursday, February 16th, 2012

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Some neighbors say a Wilmington bar is causing major problems, including shootings and drug use, but the bar owner says his business is going above and beyond to improve the community.

“We live here, and everybody here is kind of afraid of what might happen,” Michael Bolick said.

Bolick lives on 15th Street in Wilmington. He says the End Zone Sports Bar just up the road on Dawson Street causes major problems, including excess traffic, extremely loud noise and violence in the neighborhood. He says he is always concerned for his safety.

“It’s a little disconcerting to know that at any moment a shooting might occur because of something going on up at the corner,” Bolick said.

Bolick says since the bar opened in 2008, there have been major issues, including stabbings and shootings outside the club.

Tim kenny owns the building that the End Zone is in. He says the bar is not the problem. Kenny says neighbors do not understand the neighborhood they live in.

“It’s clearly an indication of difficulties that have existed in the neighborhood for a very long time, and it has a lot to do with the low-income housing project that’s across the street,” Kenny said.

Kenny says if anything, he thinks the bar has cleaned up the surrounding community.

The owner of the bar, Darryl Brown, told us he works closely with Wilmington Police to keep the area as safe as possible.

Alcohol Law Enforcement says there is an investigation into End Zone. Brown says ALE told him they must investigate any business that has a formal complaint against it.
