Woman says arrests for animal sacrifices are 'a misunderstanding'
KIAH / Harris County, Texas
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah -- (KIAH) -- Utah bars are warning each other about booking male stripper troupes for fear of losing their liquor licenses.
The traveling shows come through the state, breaking strict Utah liquor laws on live performances with nudity or sexual conduct, according to KSTU. But when the Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control hands down a fine or licensing action, the strippers are long gone.
"I’m like, 'You know we’ve got some laws here,' and they’re like, 'Yeah, we do shows all over Utah all the time,'" said Dave Morris, one of the owners of Murray's Ice Haus bar, who got hit with a $10,000 fine and suspension of a liquor license for an incident involving a show.
