WYOMING, Mich. (WZZM) -- City leaders call it a danger to the community. Now, a Wyoming bar could be shut down after a series of violent incidents.
Wyoming's city council Monday night took a step toward revoking the business license of the owner of the Galewood Tavern.
If Wyoming's police chief could give the Galewood Tavern a middle name, he would probably call it "trouble."
"It's a direct and immediate threat to public safety," says Chief James Carmody.
In 2010, after a series of violent incidents, Chief Carmody gave the bar's owner a warning.
"Since then, they're been a couple stabbings and a homicide," says Carmody.
His concerns were heard by the city council Monday night. Its members appointed a committee that could recommend shutting the bar down.
"I have a really good clientele coming in now, an older crowd of people," says Doug Slagboom, owner of the Galewood Tavern.
