Man accused in melee at club goes to prison

Rolston Drummond, who was accused of taking part in a melee outside a strip club that left a young mother dead, went to prison Friday.

He had previously pleaded guilty to felony battery and two counts of aggravated assault.

Authorities said Drummond was at Diamonds Gentleman's Club on Grand Boulevard on Feb. 24, 2008, when a fight broke out and he punched Anthony Monti. As the violence escalated, someone pulled a gun, and Monti was shot in the arm. Kellie Zorka, 27, who used to work at the club, was struck in the head and later died. Bryan Gregory Heater, 30, is charged in her death.

Drummond, 34, of Tarpon Springs went to another strip club later that night and pulled a gun, authorities said. He was sentenced to just more than four years in prison.
