After 10 hours of testimony and two hours of deliberation, the Lansing City Council failed to pass a resolution early Tuesday morning dealing with the Cadillac Club's Liquor License.

The Lansing Police Department wanted the council send a letter to the State Liquor Control Commission requesting that the club's Liquor License not be renewed after it expires at the end of April.

Lansing police say the club has become a magnet for criminal activity.

During the marathon session, LPD officers and detectives testified that there had been more than 100 police calls to the club in recent years.

Owner Dave Sheets says he had to change his business plan for the club a year ago.

He says he started bringing in Hip-Hop music acts when it became apparent that the dinner club wasn't being profitable.

Sheets says he'll work with police to fix any problems the club may have with security.
