An Indianapolis man is suing an area strip club after he said he was injured at the business.Jake Quagliaroli, 34, said he was watching a performance at PT's Showclub in Lawrence in early February when he was hit in the mouth by a shoe that flew off a dancer's foot, 6News' Rick Hightower reported."He was hit by a stiletto with a very solid heel. When he was hit, he was bleeding from the mouth," said Jonathan Little, Quagliaroli's attorney.Little said his client had no way to prepare for what turned out to be an embarrassing and expensive trip to a strip club.The dancer's shoe purportedly came off during a pole dance, striking Quagliaroli in the face as he turned toward the dance stage after getting money from an ATM, Little said."He has quite a significant amount of dental work that needs to be done," said Little. "He has veneers right now and he's possibly going to need a root canal. His dentist said the treatment he has right now is a temporary fix."Little said Quagliaroli is embarrassed by what happened but at the same time considers the incident "battery and negligence.""We're asking that my client be made whole and that his dental bills be taken care of by PT's," Little said.6News tried to reach a manager at PT's to comment on the flying shoe incident, but managers at the club have yet to return phone calls."It's the most weird coincidence I've seen," said "Sean," a worker at the club who declined to give a last name.Little said he just wants justice for the unintended shoe launch that left his client with dental damage that he said will lead to ongoing dental surgeries.
