DETROIT (WWJ) – A Detroit city councilman says he wants to give the boot — to the Booty Lounge.

Councilman Kwame Kenyatta viewed undercover video shot by Channel 4 News. It shows strippers giving lap dances on the Booty Lounge during tailgating at Eastern Market before Lions games.

“I was appalled,” Kenyatta told WWJ’s City Beat Reporter Vickie Thomas. “Had never seen anything like that. I mean … of course, I know about strip clubs – stationary – but something mobile that’s operating in a family-oriented situation…”

Kenyatta has found out that the Booty Lounge is not licensed. “When they’re stationary, they are in fact a strip club, and they have to have a license to operate.”

He’s now asking the police chief to take action.
