‘Used to date a stripper with the name Miranda Rights’ Illinois man says while being arrested
PEORIA, Illinois — A man was arrested at a strip club on Friday, March 29, when police say he refused to pay what he owed, according a police report.
Police were called to Big Al’s Speakeasy at 11:40 p.m. when the man refused to pay $25 for unknown services, the report states.
The patron tried to run when officers arrived, but police were able to catch and detain him.
As the man was escorted to a squad car, an officer read him his Miranda Rights, according to a report from the Journal Star. The patron commented that he had never had his rights read to him before.
“Used to date a stripper with the name Miranda Rights,” the man said.
According to the police report, the man was intoxicated at the time of arrest. The man’s comments were deleted from the police report given to News 8 because it was “information that could interfere with pending or actually and reasonably contemplated criminal justice proceedings,” according to the Peoria Police Department.
The man was taken to Peoria County Jail and charged with assault and theft of labor or services.
