Saying that it needed to put an end to an out-of-control nightclub, the Anne Arundel County liquor board has shut Rumblefish and will revoke the Glen Burnie club's license unless the establishment has new owners. "Rumblefish is gone," Richard C. Bittner, liquor board chairman, said yesterday of what technically is a temporary shutdown ordered at a hearing late Tuesday night. "If it comes back, it is going to come back as a completely different entity." The board's decision came after the club admitted to 14 of 39 liquor law violations.

Four gunshots were fired outside a crowded Glen Burnie nightclub early yesterday, and the only person known to have been wounded - a 21-year-old man hit in the arm - was also the only suspect arrested, county police reported. The incident occurred outside Club Rumblefish, in the 7900 block of Baltimore-Annapolis Blvd., where police were dispatched for "a possible riot" and gunshots shortly before 2 a.m. Rather than a riot, said Officer Charles Ravenell, a police spokesman, "it was just people scurrying to get out of there."

A proposal by Rumblefish -- a Glen Burnie bar where violent incidents have occurred in recent years -- for a weekly supervised night for teen-agers was rejected last night by the county liquor board. "Why do we need it?" asked liquor board Chairman Richard C. Bittner. "Because there's a constant human cry from parents that kids don't have a place to go," responded attorney Michael F. Gilligan, speaking on behalf of the bar at a hearing on the proposal. Unswayed by the bar's argument that the proposal would provide a safe social venue for underage patrons ages 13 to 20, the board unanimously rejected it. "I just don't see a need for it," Bittner said.
