Taichung police yesterday morning beefed up their presence at several potential hot spots and conducted
checks at nightclubs, after large groups were involved in street brawls two days in a row.
In the early morning, 50 officers from two precincts made rounds at commercial strips in Nantun District (南屯).
They focused on three nightclubs: X-Cube, 18TC and Coolsh, Nantu Police Precinct Chief Chou Ching-pin (周景彬) told reporters.
Police entered the clubs unannounced, turned off the music and checked the identification documents of 1,200 patrons and staff, Chou said. [FULL STORY]
