Alton, Illinois (The Weekly Vice) -- Jamie E. Day, a 24-year-old bartender from Jerseyville, Illinois has been arrested on a charge of lewd entertainment for allegedly bartending in the nude.
Day, who bartends at the Pub Room on 230 E. Broadway, was allegedly working in the buff last Friday, prompting a complaint to police. Authorities say the woman was 'performing' for male customers at the bar, but had managed to get a shirt on before officers arrived. She was taken into custody at around 2:40 p.m.
Another incident of nudity at the bar allegedly occurred in Dec. 2005 involving two partially nude employees and a female customer who was also partially nude. All three were charged with public indecency, however the cases were later closed.
Paperwork is now en route to the town Mayor's office who will will decide what to do with the bar itself in the incident. Don Sandidge, the town's Mayor and liquor license commissioner may determine to levy a fine on the business or suspend the establishment's liquor license.
On September 18, a bar in neighboring Jersey County had a similar incident involving a naked bartender.
Police arrested Janet Brannon, 33, who was bartending nude at the Cabin Tavern in Delhi, Illinois. She was arrested on a charge of public indecency by sheriff's deputies who were out on a routine check of bars in the area.
The Jersey County State Attorney's office reviewed the case and suspended the bar's liquor license for 30 days and imposed a $500 fine.
Brannon was released from jail on an $8,000 bond.
