    Pull the Plug, Bolt the Door, And Kiss Your Club Goodbye - It wasn't just any nightclub. It wasn't just any bust. And it wasn't just any owner. When Uncle Charlie's got hit, it got hit hard.

    It was members' night at Uncle Charlie's, and everyone was having a pretty good time drinking and dancing to the DJ's mix of Top 40 tunes. Until about 1:00 a.m., that is, when 30 masked men burst through the door of the bar, wielding clubs. "Everybod...
