Wow, this is why young girls need to act their age, and why clubs need to be on their sh*t:
The trendy Meatpacking District nightclub where the underage daughter of a US ambassador partied before plunging to her death from a Midtown apartment will be the focus of a criminal probe by the Manhattan DA’s Office, sources told The Post. Investigators plan to interview owners, bartenders, cocktail waitresses and bouncers about how Nicole John, 17, was allowed entry to the hotspot with a bogus ID and what she did while inside the club on Little West 12th Street.
Potential criminal charges could range from a misdemeanor, serving alcohol to a minor, up to the more serious, although unlikely, felony charge of involuntary manslaughter, said a law-enforcement source. John — the wild-child daughter of the ambassador to Thailand — died Friday at 4:14 a.m. after falling off the ledge of a 25th-floor apartment at the luxury Herald Square Towers. Tenjune co-owners Mark Birnbaum and Eugene Remm couldn’t be reached for comment. Remm was spied leaving his apartment yesterday with a suitcase, headed off for a “business trip,” his father said. Investigators are also eyeing a club promoter who may have helped John and her pals get into the club and its VIP area, the sources added.
John was carrying a Brazilian ID listing her age as 23.
A spokeswoman for Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance declined to comment. Prosecutors have already brought charges against real-estate broker Ilan Nassimi, 25, who lives in the apartment where John took her death fall. He is charged with unlawfully dealing with a child and serving alcohol to a minor.
John’s body was found on a third-story terrace between two towers next to a smashed camera. Police believe she climbed onto the 18-inch ledge to take photos, possibly of the nearby Empire State Building. Detectives will attempt to retrieve images from the camera. Her pals told cops she was snapping pics inside Tenjune, police sources said.
