Paying Up: The rock band Van Halen paid the city $10,000 to help cover police costs when 3,000 fans turned out at the Whisky nightclub for 200 tickets for a concert. “We basically told them, ‘You pick up the bill for this, or it’s over, folks.’ And they agreed,” West Hollywood City Manager Paul Brotzman said. However, the Van Halen money still won’t pay the entire tab for sheriff’s deputies and Beverly Hills police who handled crowd control outside the Sunset Boulevard club on Wednesday. “I can tell you we will probably be sending them a bill for the rest,” Brotzman said.
