WASHINGTON — Two men are in critical condition after a brawl at a District of Columbia nightclub.
Police say the fight broke out early Friday morning in the Rendezvous Lounge in the Adams Morgan section of the city.
Two men, including a customer who tried to intervene in the fight, were critically injured as they tumbled down a staircase inside the bar.
Police say the man who instigated the fight has been charged with assault with a dangerous weapon. Police say he struck someone in the head with a glass and also started swinging a bar stool.
Police Chief Cathy Lanier has ordered the bar closed for four days.
