Just your average day in Florida. People firing paintballs at strippers.
BOYNTON BEACH — Three men dressed in black walked into Platinum Gold strip club on the city’s southeast side Sunday night and started shooting exotic dancers with paintball guns, police said.
The men, along with an afternoon-shift dancer and another woman who had been arguing with a manager when the shooters showed up, all fled the club at 3675 S. Federal Hwy. before police got there about 11:15 p.m.
Officers rushed in to discover three dancers, ages 28, 44 and 51, peppered with pink paintballs and covered in circular bruises. Surveying the rest of the club, they noticed several broken, paint splattered mirrors and a bar top stained in a patchwork of flamingo splotches. City paramedics treated the dancers in the club.
After investigating, police came to suspect the three men paintballed the dance club on behalf of the afternoon-shift dancer, who became angry after the manager refused to exchange her “funny money” for cash earlier in the day, police said.
Throw in possible counterfeiting while you’re at it too. Isn’t Florida a great state or what?
