According to the West Virginia Alcohol Beverage Control Administration spokesperson Gary Robinson, the 10-day suspension of Club Impulse's liquor license has been extended.

The original suspension began January 28th and was set to expire Feb 6th.

An order was served yesterday to extend the suspension for another 10 days. That second suspension went into effect February 7th and will continue through the 17th of this month.

The investigation is ongoing. The WVABCA will determine what administrative action to take.


Charleston Police said they have a suspect in the weekend stabbing of a University of Charleston football player.

Kevin Clemens, 18, was stabbed multiple times as he left Impulse nightclub early Sunday morning, police said.

This particular nightclub has been a huge issue for police in the past.

"This is not the first incident where there's been violence. There's been several times where it spills outside. The clientele out there is a pretty rough clientele," Cooper said.

According to the University of Charleston's football roster, Clemens is a freshman linebacker for the team.

Lt. Steve Cooper said an arrest warrant will be served very soon.

In the meantime, the Alcohol Beverage Control Administration has suspended the nightclub's liquor license for 10 days.


More violence erupts outside of a popular nightclub in downtown Charleston, sending a teenager to the hospital.

Charleston Police said they are still looking for the person who violently stabbed a teen multiple times in the stomach early Sunday morning.

It happened around 3 a.m. right outside of Impulse nightclub on Capitol Street.

This is a place that is no stranger to violent fights.

Back in December, a similar situation happened at Impulse.  Police said one man was stabbed multiple times during a fight, while another man was hit over the head with a beer bottle.

Mayor Danny Jones has also expressed his distaste for the nightclub in the past.

The victim in Sunday's stabbing is expected to make a full recovery.

Call Charleston Police if you have any information that can help solve this case at 304-348-6480.

13 News is working to find out what punishments, if any, the club will face following this latest incident.
