Man Opens Fire After Iowa Strip Club Denies Debit Card For Lap Dance

An Iowa man allegedly opened fire in a strip club parking lot after his debit card was declined for a private dance, a report said.

James Allen Wells, 67, was a patron at the Porsches Theater of the Arts strip club in Waterloo, Iowa, around 11 p.m. Friday when he got a lap dance and couldn’t pay, according to the Courier.

After the card was declined, Wells went to the parking lot and pulled a .38-caliber Smith & Wesson revolver from his waistband, firing off five rounds, the report said.

Multiple cars were struck before the gunman left and police attempted to pull him over for speeding but he refused to stop, leading to a chase.

Wells crashed his vehicle into a curb and was apprehended after a scuffle with police. Wells was charged with criminal mischief, reckless use of a firearm, assault on a peace officer and reckless driving.
