ST. JOSEPH — An adult entertainment business in St. Joseph is in trouble after police reported it violated a new state law.

The law took effect Aug. 28. It requires sexually oriented businesses to close by midnight. It also bans full nudity, alcohol, minors and touching between semi-nude employees and customers.

Police said a club called Blondie's broke the law on Monday during a male revue, "Hunks: The Show," by offering nudity and booze.

The St. Joseph News-Press reported that the owner and manager who was on duty that night were arrested. Plus, four male dancers received summonses for not being licensed by the city for adult entertainment.

Police also expect to forward an administrative case against Blondie's to City Hall to determine the status of its liquor and business licenses.
