A scuffle broke out at a council meeting after a Stanmore pub had its opening hours reduced.
According to witnesses there was an altercation between a member of the Pynnacles Residents' Association and the father of the manager of the Crazy Horse, in Church Road. Security guards were called to Harrow Council Chambers at 12.45am to break up the incident, which occured as the public left the licensing panel hearing on May 12.
The Crazy Horse will now open until 11.30pm from Sunday to Thursday and until 12am on Friday and Saturday. Previously the pub could open until 1am from Sunday to Thursday and until 2am on Friday and Saturday.
The hearing took place after police were called to a series of fights at the pub from January until March 2008 and traces of cocaine were found on the premises.
During the hearing Prupti Malde, a member of the Pynnacles Residents' Association, said: "My window is six-and-a-half metres away from the Crazy Horse. I only get five hours sleep because of the noise, we are being deined our basic rights."
Sergeant Carl Davis, from Harrow Police, said: "There was a lot of emotion expressed by both sides at the panel. The council heard all the evidence and took a decision to our satisfaction."
Daniel Owide, the manager, said: "I was in total shock, I felt I had the support of the council and the police therefore we will appeal."
When asked about reports of a fight Mr Owide said: "This was something between a resident and my father and I do not wish to comment on it."
The Crazy Horse has 21 days to appeal the ruling, if an appeal is made the pub will retain the terms of its old licence until a decision is reached.
