2 Men Undergoing Leg Amputations Following Possible Hate Crime At LA Strip Club

LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — An argument at an L.A. strip club turned violent early Sunday when a man reportedly plowed his car into two men, requiring them to undergo leg amputations.

The incident occurred at around 3:30 a.m. in the parking lot of Sam’s Hofbrau strip club at 1751 East Olympic Boulevard, according to the LAPD.

The suspect reportedly rammed the men with his white BMW, pinning them against a black Mini-Cooper. The Mini-Cooper, which is said to belong to one of the employees, was then pushed up against a wall.

Police are treating the incident as a possible hate crime because the suspect, described as African American and in his 50s, reportedly made racial comments to the victims, who were both described as Latino, when the argument began inside the club.

Following the crash, the suspect sat for some time in his vehicle with his head slumped. He was placed under arrest.

CBS2/KCAL9 reporter Art Barron tried to speak with police and dancers at the club but no one would comment on the incident.

The victims were transported to a hospital where they are both undergoing surgery. A victim needs his right leg amputated above the knee and another man needs both of his legs amputated above the knee, the LAPD reported.

Doctors will reportedly try to repair their injuries and reattach the legs

Moral of the story:

Go to a strip club and you won’t have a leg to stand on...

"The suspect reportedly rammed the men with his white BMW, pinning them against a black Mini-Cooper."

“a possible hate crime because the suspect, described as African American and in his 50s, reportedly made racial comments to the victims, who were both described as Latino”

Now, that can’t be! Only white people commit hate crimes!

This case provides a stark contrast to all the vehicular assault incidents requiring leg amputations that are classified as love crimes.

We saw similar when I was an EMT. 90 people in the club, but they were ALL out having a smoke or in the bathroom when the victim was shot/stabbed in the middle of the dance floor.

"I didn't see nuthin', man..."

Okay. I’m really confused now. “Black” guy driving a “white” beemer slams in to a “black” mini (also a bmw product?) crushing 2 hispanic guys (brown guys) against a wall. That really sucks for the “brown” guys. But how do they know it was “hate” and not just a “strong dislike”? A much lesser crime. Except for the part where the “brown” guys lose their legs. That still sucks. Another reason not to frequent strip clubs I guess.

Those legs should have been home sleeping instead of between a BMW and a Mini-Cooper.

It can't be auto-racism, check out the color of the mini Cooper

Technically speaking, since BMW owns Mini, this sounds like more of a domestic squabble than a hate crime...

When they start applying the term "hate crimes" to black-on-white attacks, maybe I'll start caring about "hate crimes".

Domestic squabbles. One call most cops “hate” to respond to. Is that a bad thing? YUP!

That is true. I wonder if these guys were white Latinos? If so, maybe they will be the ones charged with a hate crime, for getting in the way of the other guys car.

A fiver or a ten spot placed appropriately would probably have loosened their tongues.

This is another very funny line.

Something out there today is causing a tremendous amount for what used to be called “black” humor.

Very funny line. One of many on this site today

Are strip clubs ADA compliant?

A Hofbrau strip club? Is there nothing sacred anymore?

Had the victims been white or asian, it would not have been reported as a hate crime and the drivers ethnicity would not have been reported.

For some reason, the media suppresses black on white or asian crimes, but seem to be eagerly reporting black on hispanic or hispanic on black.

Are they trying to get a race war going between those two groups, while not promoting the one going on between blacks and everyone else?
