Sheriff successful in shutting down club he called "nuisance"

Posted: Updated:

A Sumter nightclub called a "nuisance and dangerous menace" by the county sheriff has been closed down.

After several code enforcement citations were issued to Club Miami over the weekend, the nightclub was shut down.  Major Allen Dailey with the Sumter County Sheriff's Office says SLED issued citations against the club's alcohol license.  SLED confirms the citations were for allowing a non-member of the club to enter and failure to maintain updated records of members.

Dailey said the codes enforcement officials from the city and county shut down the club for "numerous violations" after an inspection.

Two weeks ago Sheriff Anthony Dennis announced he was going to shut down the club on Broad Street Extension.  The announcement came days after a deadly shooting in the club's parking lot.

Dennis said then his officers had been called to the club more than 400 times during his seven-year term as sheriff. Some people living near the club started a petition dive to have it closed.

Dennis said the county would work to have the club's business and alcohol permits revoked unless the club's owners shut down voluntarily.
