Following 2 violent incidents at nightclubs in Queensland, Maryborough nightclub patrons have been warned to stay clear of any violence or risk being banned from clubs in the area under the liquor accord.
A Maryborough nightclub owner, Brendan Heit warned patrons that violence would not be tolerated after water polo player Cole Miller was killed and a woman was punched in the back of the head in 2 separate incidents.
He warned that patrons involved in violence, even in self defence would face barring not only from the club where the incident occurs, but all clubs under the liquor accord.
Mr Heit explained the importance of getting the anti-violence message across. He said this initiative would ensure a safer area.
