Widow rejects club's donation

Last week, Sgt. Howard Plouff was shot and killed outside a nightclub in Winston-Salem while trying to break up a fight. The Red Roster club had offered to donate proceeds from two nights to Plouff's family.

However, the North Carolina Police Benevolent Association has said the family of Sgt. Plouff won't accept any of the money raised by the club.

Meanwhile, the Forsyth County Sheriff's Office Friday arrested a club bouncer who's accused of firing a gun in the air while deputies were trying to break up the fight.

Donations can be made at area Wachovia Bank locations or mailed to the Police Benevolent Foundation (write Plouff Trust on the memo line), 1900 Brannan Road, McConough, Ga., 30253.
