The southside meeting place for republicans is Club Zeus.

On Thanksgiving, the entertainment was especially wonderful.

A stripper from Illinois got off to a shaky start her first night on the job at an Indianapolis show club when, she claims, another woman female with pink hair jumped on stage while she was dancing and began punching her in the head and chest.

The on-stage bustle early Thursday shook $74 out of the dancer's bra, which she said other women near the stage quickly snatched up, according to a police report.

Kari Smith, 22, of Riverton, Ill., told an Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department IMPD officer called to Club Zeus at 3:19 a.m. to investigate an alleged assault that it was her first night working as a dancer at the club in the 2700 block of South Madison Avenue. Ave.

Smith also reported that when she walked off stage after the scuffle she found her wallet, which contained debit and credit cards, was missing from a locker room at the club.

A police report described Smith as "extremely intoxicated" and said she "changed her story as to what exactly happened multiple times." The officer also reported Smith was "screaming racial slurs towards people leaving the club" as he attempted to interview her.

No arrests were made.
