One of the theories making the rounds regarding the events culminating in the shooting of former Bad Newz Kennels co-owner Quanis Phillips suggests that Phillips tried to gain access to the party, that he was turned away, and that a brouhaha ensued.
This theory, if accurate, would tend to dispel the notion that Eagles quarterback Mike Vick was “associating” with a convicted felon at his 30th birthday party. Instead, these facts would suggest that Phillips tried unsuccessfully to “associate” with Vick.
One of the owners of the restaurant/nightclub where the party occurred appeared on 97.5 The Fanatic in Philly to talk about the situation. And Allen Fabijan explained that there were no incidents at the club that evening, and that Phillips was not escorted out of the establishment.
“We don’t have any reflection of that on video,” Fabijan said, pointing out later that 16 surveillance cameras have been installed on the premises.
Fabijan also reiterated that shots rang out at 2:09 a.m. ET, only two minutes after Vick’s vehicle pulled away from the club. The shots came from the same direction in which Vick’s vehicle was headed.
