Struck By Stripper's Stiletto; Suing

One Charles Privette is suing the tastefully named "Booby Trap" strip club in south Florida after he was injured by a dancer's shoe, which allegedly "flew off during a pole dance, shattered the mirrored ceiling and caused glass and the shoe to hit him."  The plaintiff's attorney, Omar Demetriou, says in another story that "what exactly caused the dancer's shoe to fly off is unclear."

The club acknowledges that Privette was slightly injured, but also observes that one paramedic stated, "I can't believe you even called us for this."  Privette seeks $15,000 in damages.
