Six local exotic dance club employees have sued the two Columbus police officers who arrested them along with porn star Stormy Daniels at their place of employment last year.
The suit says vice officers Steve Rosser and Whitney Lancaster targeted the club and threatened the owner with citations or closure unless a bouncer one of the detectives knew was rehired. The suit cites alleged violations of the Fourth and Fifteenth Amendments to the U.S. Constitution. The officers were suspended and the vice unit has been shut down. Criminal charges against the women were dropped. The defendants have yet to comment.
