Strip Club Sued For Negligent Pole Dancing

Florida's CBS Channel 4 has the scoop:
FORT LAUDERDALE (CBS4) ― A Margate man has filed a lawsuit against a Pompano Beach strip club for injuries he said he sustained during a stripper's performance.

Charles Privette, 35, says a performer's high heel shoe flew off during a pole dance, shattered the mirrored ceiling and caused glass and the shoe to hit him.

The lawsuit filed in Broward says the Booby Trap breached its duty when its employee failed to perform her routine in a reasonably safe manner. The suit seeks at least $15,000 in damages.

Privette's attorney says his client suffered a small cut to his eyebrow, headaches and nose bleeds because of the Jan. 14 incident.

Booby Trap general manager George Gettinger acknowledges paramedics were called but says injuries were minor.
In fairness to the guy he didn't see the shoe fly off until the last second. He was staring at other things.
