Police action at East LA

4/29/2010:

Note: The Manager of East LA said that the event started when staff didn’t permit a patron outside with an open container. The customer apparently flipped out and pulled a knife. HPD arrived and were searching for the weapon. Apparently drugs were not part of this individual incident.

Ole! More HPD Action at East LA

An anonymous Hoboken411 reader caught this big action in front of East LA and said: “Seven HPD cars showed up. 12 officers on scene. With black male in custody. Officers searching under cars and all over sidewalks with flash lights. Another East LA deal gone bad? Action is in front of 520 Washington….”

Interesting how East LA has become the blogging focal point for many untoward things that have been going on in Hoboken long before it was an expensive “destination”. Sure, East LA has made some regrettable decisions in the past year or so, but crime wasn’t invented there.

Past year or so? East LA has probably been one of the more troublesome spots going back a lot farther back than a year. Maybe it has something to do w/ the fact that it is named after the ever so classy neighborhood of East LA.

Couldn’t agree more it’s been much longer than a year of debauchery. I’ve lived in Hoboken for over 15 years and watched the rapid decline of this establishment. It actually was a lot of fun despite the troublesome part. Now it is just pure trouble. The food was actually good, great portions and cheap. Margaritas always good and a fun staff and crowd. Now the staff is lazy and it feels as if you are actually bothering them by simply placing an order(obviously some more than others. The old school staff is still fun and good. It’s more the newer employee’s. Particularly the really fat/ugly hostess who simply sits and eats all the time. Sorry to be judgemental about looks and typically I wouldn’t be, but it’s because she is supposed to be serving people food and just looking at her takes away anyone’s appetite. This is why the crowd has gotten increasingly worse as well as no manager aside from security guards who try to act like management. Over the last week there have been two more fights. Someone was brought out on a stretcher last Thursday and tonight police had to show up for another two fights. One supposedly with an employee. I actually miss the good old days of East LA and while it was trouble it was fun! Now it is just trouble, miserable, and dangerous quite honestly. [quote comment=”191475″]Past year or so?

I think I know what your dogs were trying to say.

It’s either “We want steak!!!”

or

“Dammit, that video sucked!!!”
