The City of Jackson today announced that it has agreed with the owners of Hale Street Disco,
located at 303 Hale Street in Jackson, that the owners and tenants of the premises are prohibited from
selling beer or alcohol for five years.
City attorney Lewis Cobb stated, “This closes one more dangerous nightclub, which was
operating illegally and in violation of city code and state law.”
The city brought a nuisance action to close the club a month ago. In addition to preparing
and selling food without the proper equipment, club patrons and employees were engaged in the
illegal sale of alcohol and gambling.
“Today we reached an agreement with owners Robert Cantrell and Helen Cantrell to close
the premises,” said Cobb. “We are glad the property owners sought and agreed to a mutually
beneficial resolution in order to keep the citizens of Jackson safe. This action will reduce the amount
of violence and crime associated with these nightclubs.”
