    El Rincon in San Francisco.

    While throwing a wild party that gets the cops called on you may do something for your street cred, having a cop get shot at a party is not good for business.

    The controversial San Francisco Entertainment Commission moved swiftly to punish El Rincon for hosting an event that led to an officer getting shot in the foot.

    The nightclub on Harrison Street in the City will not be able to host live music for the next 72 hours after an officer was shot in an after hours fight.

    El Rincon on Harrison Street at the corner of 16th Street will not be allowed to host DJs or live music for the next 72 hours, after a rowdy night left one police officer shot in the foot.

    The problem started Saturday night at 1:30 a.m. when a fight broke outside of the club. Officers were called to break up the fight but one was shot in the foot.

    The much maligned commission used newly installed powers given by the Board of Supervisors that allow it to penalize troubled clubs.

    The City appointed commission came under fire after several high profile incidents erupted at city night clubs, including a shooting outside of Suede.

    The club's owners will have to appear before the commission Tuesday to discuss hosting music events again.
