Raymond Chow, also known as "Shrimp Boy," recently took over management of Night Market.

Thursday, sources told ABC7 that Mayor Gavin Newsom had concerns about the former gangster running the program.

Now the city has pulled its $35,000 grant, saying any change of management should have been approved by city officials.
