If there’s one tried and true rule of strip clubs, it’s that you don’t mess with the talent in any way. I learned that the hard way at the Spearmint Rhino in Las Vegas, where I jokingly asked a very ripped stripper if she was taking steroids. She said no, but I didn’t let it go and started pointing to her elbows, joking about how I could see the track marks from where she shot up.
I got thrown out real fast.
I’m not saying what I did was right, just that I feel for 23-year-old Kyle Yeomans, who was punched in the face several times by a dancer at Derriere’s Gentlemen’s Club in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. The Smoking Gun has the details on his (much deserved) assault.
Yeomans recalled that the stripper was “annoying him and that she kept trying to talk to him and he was tired of it,” investigators noted. Yeomans, pictured at right, told cops that he was drunk at the time, and rated his level of intoxication “an 11 out of 10.”
In response to being annoyed, Yeomans “told the dancer that she should go to the gym and lose weight.” The stripper, Yeomans said, was a white female with long black hair. He estimated that she weighed between 115-120 pounds, and was no more than 25 years old.
Yeomans also reported that his attacker had “a muffin top.”
After receiving Yeomans’s unsolicited fitness advice, the stripper allegedly “reached off the stage and struck him 4 times in the face,” police noted. Yeomans said he was then dragged out of Derriere’s by bouncers who were “unnecessarily rough with him.”
Derriere’s is a BYOB establishment, which explains a lot of this.
The stripper was also wearing a ring that allegedly cut Yeomans face, but after reporting the assault to police, Yeomans declined to press charges.
Yeomans, it should be noted, has a rib cage tattoo.
