If one day strip clubs start to offer patrons mouthguards, or have dancers wear bunny slippers rather than stilettos, you might be able to trace it back to a lawsuit filed in Indiana, in which a man says he got his teeth kicked in by a projectile flung from a high-kicking dancer.
According to AOL News, the dancer’s shoe flew off during a performance, sailed 20 feet and damaged four of the alleged victim’s teeth. The man had to get them capped and may need a root canal.
Says the man’s attorney:
“As bizarre as it is, the strip club had a duty to protect its customers and it did not do that. [They] need to make sure people are wearing the right kind of clothes and [that those clothes] are not flying off.”
