City Ordinance May Change the Rules at Michelle's Beach House

Derby, KS

The city told her it was OK to open the strip club, now they're saying only if you follow the new rules.

Customers can not touch and dancers can't bare too much. Those are some of the laws listed in a new Derby ordinance pertaining to adult entertainment.

Michelle Borin, the owner of Michelle's Beach House says the new ordinance should not apply to her club.

She says the city of Derby allowed her to move her strip club closer to town and allowed her to open for business.

Less than a month later, she says the city changed the ordinance.

Borin says this is how she's run her business for the last ten years.

Borin says, "I should be grand-fathered in and with this new ordinance. If anyone wants to come to the city of Derby, that should apply to them."

Derby City Manager, Kathy Sexton, says when the city creates or changes its ordinance, they pertain to everyone.

Borin has already taken her case to court.

On Friday, a Sedgwick County judge issued a temporary restraining order, allowing dancers to abide by the old ordinance for two weeks.

Great story about Tom Katz in Flora Vista, NM

A 37-year-old Aztec man was arrested March 4 after refusing to pay for lap dances at a local strip club, and then drunkenly driving his van three feet into the Flora Vista business.

At around 1 a.m. March 4, deputies were called to the Flora Vista strip club after employees reported that someone had driven into the side of building with a van, Truby said. Deputies were provided a description of the van and a possible license plate number, and arrested Charley before arriving at Tom Katz.

When deputies later arrived at the club, they learned Charley had been there and was receiving lap dances from some of the female dancers. When Charley refused to pay for some of the dances, bouncers began to escort him out of the building.

Charley "became belligerent and attempted to hit one of the bouncers," Truby said. Once outside the building, Charley paid for his dances and got into his van to leave.

The bouncers went back into the building when they heard a loud crash.

"Witnesses heard a loud noise, looked over and the doors were almost pushed open and there was a lot of light coming through," Truby said. "That's when (Charley) backed up his van and started driving at the building again."

One bouncer was forced to jump inside an office near the front doors when Charley rammed the entrance. The van eventually came to a stop nearly three feet inside the strip club.

Charley then backed out of the club and drove toward Aztec.

Truby said the incident was a rare occurrence, noting the damage to the building was estimated to be $1,000.
