The New York Post reports the State Liquor Authority filed 14 charges on Friday against New York City's W.i.P. nightclub.

The agency says the Manhattan club has been cited for numerous fights, excessive noise and using unlicensed or unprofessional guards, including one accused of selling marijuana to an undercover investigator.

Liquor Authority spokesman William Crowley says the club is in danger of having its license yanked.

Club representatives were unavailable for comment.

The club earned notoriety earlier this month, when Brown and Drake reportedly were involved in a fight, as patrons hurled bottles of liquor.

The fallout continued when NBA star Tony Parker filed a $20 million lawsuit against the club's owners last Thursday. He says his cornea was scratched in the dust-up.
