BRIDGEPORT - Two people are under arrest after police raided a Bridgeport teen club overnight.

Police arrived at the L&A Social Club at Hollister and Stratford avenues with a search warrant after they say they received a tip saying the club was selling alcohol to minors. They arrested 44-year-old David Elerby on allegations that he was serving alcohol without a permit and 46-year-old George Sharpe on liquor-related offenses.

Owner Andrea Medley says police kicked in the door of her club, busted open a window and created chaos that led to injuries.

Police say they had a search and seizure warrant because of an investigation into whether the club was serving and selling alcohol without a license.

State police are overseeing the investigation into the incident.
