First Violators of Missouri Strip Club Law Arrested for Male Dancers
No, they were exploiting a review of bare-chested, male beefcakes with names like Flex, Diesel, Draven and Ricardo. The men -- part of Hunks: The Ultimate Las Vegas Travelling All-Male Revue -- were in St. Joseph on Monday night performing at a bar called Blondie's.
According to reports, police were alerted to the show when an anonymous tipster called in to complain about a flier for the event advertising "on-stage lap dances."
So, St. Joseph's police sent two female cops on undercover assignment to the club (anyone else see a porn plot in the making here??), wherein the officers allegedly witnessed a few Hunks expose themselves. The cops cited four of the men for not having their state-issued entertainment licenses.
Meanwhile, the owner and manager of Blondie's were arrested for violating the anti-nudity law that went into effect August 28. The law also bans the sale and/or consumption of alcohol at strip clubs, and investigators are looking into whether the bar violated the liquor provision of the law as well.
A manager of Blondie's told the KQ 2 News in St. Joseph that he believes the law to be unconstitutional.
