It's been a hot spot for Girls Gone Wild, even jello wrestling, but a Charleston nightclub could be on the chopping block.

Mayor Danny Jones wants the Planning Commission to reconsider the special permit for Banana Joe's on Capitol Street.

The mayor says police are called to the area way too often, there was even a shooting outside the club last fall.

Right now, the owners are operating on a probationary permit.

The mayor will make his recommendation to the commission on Wednesday.
