Police: Strippers And Coffee On The Menu At One Somerset Business

A Southern Kentucky karaoke cafe has been shut down; because police say the establishment was serving more than coffee and clean fun.
D.J.'s Night Club in Somerset was reportedly home to: illegal alcohol sales, electronic gambling, and exotic dancing. Police were tipped off to the illegal operation by concerned citizens. Shortly after authorities launched a hidden camera investigation. Police say the video that they gathered shows a man receiving a bottomless lap dance from a stripper in exchange for money.
Authorities raided the club Saturday night and reportedly found receipts from illegal alcohol sales, gambling machines, and other individuals carrying concealed weapons. Police say shutting this operation down, likely prevented other illegal behaviors.
The evidence collected during the raid is being evaluated to see what charges the nightclub owner will face.
