The controversial 8-liner gamerooms are back and busy in San Diego, despite the fact that the Duval County Sheriff has vowed to shut them down.

It was five months ago when the Duval County Sheriff's Office shut down those gamerooms, and then earlier in February, the City Council voted to allow them back within city limits.

The parking lot of a gameroom near Flores Street in San Diego was filled with cars Thursday. Business was clearly good inside, but most hid their faces or drove away, not willing to talk about the activity inside of the business.

Duval County Sheriff Romeo Ramirez has said that he has already given fair warning, and there will be no second warning. The mayor has said that the city needs the revenues generated from the 8-liner machine permit fees.
