DeKalb club owner gets prison for drug trafficking, using crooked cop

Christopher Dixon, aka “Yardman,” aka Club Xpose owner, aka ex-fugitive of six years, aka convicted trafficker, aka buddy of a corrupt DeKalb County cop, is going to federal prison.

He was sentenced to 11 years for moving 1,000 pounds of pot and about 25,000 pills of MDMA (ecstasy) and BZP (similar to ecstasy), U.S. Attorney John Horn’s office announced. Dixon was involved with a drug organization, which used tips from the cop and distributed over 1 million pills of MDMA and BZP.

“A staggering amount of drugs,” said Horn.

The 44-year-old pleaded guilty this summer to a conspiratorial drug trafficking charge, the news release said.

According to the release, an investigation from 2009 to 2010 led to the convictions of 15 people tied to the drug racket. For his part, Dixon did deals and supervised several lower-level traffickers, while running Club Xpose in Stone Mountain.

Dixon used former DeKalb County Police Officer Donald Bristol to get “sensitive law enforcement information.” Bristol was sentenced to a year and a day in prison.

Back in 2010, authorities expected Dixon to surrender. He wasn’t arrested until this past November, in Franklin County.

After the prison stint, he faces five years of supervised release.
