Julius Floyd (aka Young Boss), owner of Hoodboy Records, hosted a high-profile party at the club last month, according to Fox 4. After he was paying the DJs at the end of the night, Floyd went downstairs only to allegedly find Del Hedgepath, the owner of Club NRG, touching Floyd's ladyfriend.
"What are you doing, she tells you she's with me and we are about to leave, I'm paying the DJ's and what are you doing putting your hands on a female anyway?" Floyd recounted to Fox 4. When Floyd confronted him, Hedgepath then supposedly reached his hand around a bouncer, slapped Floyd's face, and jumped back behind the bouncer to hide in the safe and secure folds of the bouncer's bulk.
Floyd says he defended himself and was tackled by the bouncers. He decided to file a police report rather than settling the score at the club. Now Hedgepath is charged with assault. Said Floyd to Fox 4:
"Other club owners take their business serious. They are there for longevity of business, not just about the money. With (Hedgepath), it's all about the money."
(In fact, there's a book written about Hedgepath's love of money. If you'd like to learn how to rake in dough the Hedgepath way, consider purchasing the book Rags to Riches: Motivating Stories of How Ordinary People Achieved Extraordinary Wealth!. He's Chapter One.)
Those without a taste for the dramatic are growing sick of NRG's mayhem. Back when NRG was called Club NV, it was fined and suspended. Now, the city is willing to hold off on zapping Club NRG on two conditions: that Hedgepath sells the club by November 30, and that he never be involved with the club's management again.
