Party-Goer Claims Club Mistreated Him
January 10, 2005
HOUSTON, TEXAS--Last week, KTRK-TV reported on Musa Hussein, a man who was invited by friends to a New Year's Eve party at the O2 Club in downtown Houston.
Hussein claimed that when he arrived club employees refused to let him in because of his disability.
"It was explained to me that I couldn't get into the club because I was disabled in a wheelchair," he told the reporter.
The workers eventually changed their minds. But once he was allowed in, the club charged him $100 admission while charging other patrons only $20, Hussein said.
Things got worse when he did finally get inside because workers sat him next to an exit -- then took away his wheelchair.
"That was the worst of it," Musa said. "I felt like where he positioned me and left me. Basically that would be leaving you without your legs."
The club owner denied Hussein's claims that he was charged more than other party-goers.
