Commissioners Put Pure Platinum On Probation

Posted: Updated:

Even though commissioners are keeping the doors open the owner of Pure Platinum at first did not want to talk about it.

"You're going to be back in the business they're giving you a second chance, we quizzed owner Tyrone Davis.

This afternoon Augusta commissioners voted to give Pure Platinum a second change, putting the club on six months probation for repeated violations of selling after hours.

But in March there was also a fight outside the club, that later resulted in the death of 28 year old, Phillip Boynton, but commissioners say based on the Sheriff's Office investigation, the club was not responsible for what happened.

"It's unfortunate the situation occurred, but from what I understand the individual who was involved, in that as well found no fault of him he was considered protecting himself, "said Mayor Pro-Tem Corey Johnson.

Commissioner Bill Lockett felt the punishment did not go far enough,  instead requested  a three month suspension out  pointing  out when the owner managed  the Club Nine restaurant it was cited more than a dozen times for underage drinking.

"At Cloud nine every citation for under age I went and got the police myself and I didn't allow underage drinking," said Davis. 
 But as commissioner Alvin Mason pointed out there was no second chance for the man killed following the fight outside the club.

How do you react to what commissioner Mason said, I asked Davis.

"End of the interview,"" he said.

But things are not ending at Pure Platinum.
