Fights Break Out At 'Last Party' At Maverick's Live In The Landing

Jun 3, 2019

A viral video being shared on social media shows fights breaking out Saturday night at Maverick's Live inside the Jacksonville Landing. 

WJCT News partner News4Jax reports that most businesses in the Landing have already shut their doors, but the nightclub is one of a handful still open for business. Online promotion for Saturday night's party called it "the last party" and said everyone over 21 could drink free until midnight.

The event's promoter said its party hit capacity before midnight, but declined comment on the violence.

Video shows continuous fights breaking out, something attorney John Phillips said is concerning.

“These videos usually are pretty quick because security comes in and stops them,” he said. “This one just kind of broke out and broke out again and kept breaking out.”

The city of Jacksonville, which bought out the landlord of the Landing earlier this year, said it is investigating.
