A stripper was jailed and a man might lose his left eye after a huge Friday night melee at southeast Austin gentlemen's club Hot Bodies.
According to KXAN, Austin police responded to a call about a dressing room fight involving no fewer than 17 of the dancers -- that's what is known as a binder of strippers. When they arrived, they found a man clasping both of his hands to his left eye. He told police he had been hit in the face by the spike-heel of a flung shoe. (The man had to be hospitalized, and might lose the use of his eye.)
Security cam footage led police to a suspect.
After carefully viewing the video evidence of the scantily clad women fighting, police eventually were led in the direction of 21-year-old Victoria Perez, who cagily allowed that she "may have" thrown the offending footwear.
Her arrest affidavit claims that the shoe could have been a deadly weapon. Perez was charged with aggravated assault, a second-degree felony punishable by two to 20 years in prison. Bail was set at $50,000.
