A semi-nude dancer at a bar Tuesday night was too semi-nude, as far as Lawrence Police were concerned.

"Officers found a dancer on stage not wearing her pasties," Sgt. Mike Pattrick, police spokesman, said.

Officers were called to Bada Bing, 913 N. Second St., shortly before midnight to investigate a sexual assault report.

While investigating that incident, officers saw a male patron on the performance stage with a female dancer. That is prohibited in a sexually oriented business, according to ordinances.

They also saw a dancer who was not wearing pasties, Pattrick said.

No one was arrested, but a report will be sent to the Lawrence Municipal Court prosecutor's office.

As for the sexual assault, an 18-year-old woman told officers she was inappropriately touched by a 55-year-old man. Police are investigating.
