Brooklyn Man Charged in Tammany Hall Riot
Police have charged a Brooklyn man in connection with the chaos that erupted during a hip-hop concert at Tammany Hall music club and spilled out into a riot on Orchard Street last night.
Gabriel Diaz, 27, of 244 Bond St., Brooklyn, was charged with two felonies: assault and rioting, according to police. He was also charged with three misdemeanor offenses: obstructing a governmental administration, resisting arrest and inciting to riot; as well as two less-serious violations, disorderly conduct and possession of marijuana.
In all, five people were arrested at the scene, which filled the block of Orchard between Rivington and Stanton with police sirens, flashing lights and shouting shortly after midnight. The NYPD has not released details on the other four individuals taken into custody.
We’ve reached out to Tammany Hall owner Jason Baron to hear the club’s side of the story, but haven’t heard from him yet.
