Evidence submitted during a court hearing regarding closure of a nightclub due to its being a public nuisance has led to another hearing scheduled to determine whether the club’s alcohol license should be revoked.The evidence includes the discovery of an allegedly forged lease agreement used to obtain an alcohol license, Ogeechee Judicial Circuit Assistant District Attorney Daphne Jarriel. This led to Bulloch County Superior Court Judge John R. Turner issuing a consent order Friday for a hearing to determine whether Primetime Lounge should have the license revoked. The hearing is slated for 9 a.m. Jan. 7.During a hearing Dec. 12, Primetime Lounge owners Karen Brown and Eurl Kittles each took the stand, along with witnesses including Mark Anderson, a partner with Bulloch Properties LLC, from which Kittles leases the building that houses the lounge on Northside Drive West.Both Kittles and Brown testified that they submitted a lease agreement to the Georgia Department of Revenue, signed by Brown and listing her as the owner, in order to obtain a license to sell alcohol.
