"Councilwoman, Residents Fighting West Avenue Strip Club"

Well, this sounds like a poorly run establishment anyway.
A strip club most recently in the public eye for on suspicion of allowing a minor to dance topless has become the target of nearby residents as well as a city councilwoman.

Club Babylon, whose 37-year-old manager, Manuel Alvarado, was arrested and charged with allowing the sexual performance of a child last week, has been visited over and over again by San Antonio police for various calls, said District 1 City Councilwoman Mary Alice Cisneros.

San Antonio police found a 16-year-old girl dancing topless inside the club last week.

The club, located on West Avenue, has had 140 calls for service since opening in July 2007, including those for assault, theft and other misdemeanors. A taco vendor was also killed near the club in 2008.

Okay, ordinarily I would assume this to be some form of Cibrian grandstanding, but I think we can all agree that allowing 16 year-olds (regardless of how old they may appearto be) to dance topless is pretty much fair enough reason to shut a place down.

I'm sure the girl's stage mother (there always seems to be one) is proud nonetheless.
