Sidney Phillips, the Grand Canal bouncer charged with assault and battery with a dangerous weapon after allegedly kicking and punching a group of clubgoers during a fight, has been fired by the club, its owner said Thursday.

Additionally, the club will schedule police details for appropriate times and will hold periodic refresher sessions on the rules and regulations of the City Licensing Board, Murray said. Phillips pleaded not guilty in court Tuesday.
