Area Gentlemen's Club Under Fire
(WOLO) COLUMBIA,S.C, --
Authorities say just before 2 Sunday morning they responded to the 3 thousand block of River Drive where they received a tip. According to officials the tip claimed the business was not only selling alcohol without a license, but also alleged they were operating as a sexually oriented business.
Deputies tell ABC Columbia News, a Manager and three women preforming at the business were taken into custody.
Sheriff Leon Lott released a statement concerning the business saying:
"The Ownership and Management of Club Crush drew a line in the sand when daring us to close them down. We will do everything to make sure that happens and that they follow the law until their doors are locked permanently."
Sheriff Lott added, any business or establishment that repeatedly endangers lives and violates the law will not be tolerated.
Authorities say the business was raided last week following more than 140 incidents. Stay with ABC Columbia News for the latest developments.
