FL Official Under Fire for Strip Club Visit, Restaurant Brawl

Local Florida commissioner Carl Lentz is under fire for two separate yet equally strange incidents: allegedly soliciting sex in a strip club, and getting into a fight in a restaurant last year; both incidents claim to light within a week of each other. Daytona Beach police released video of both incidents and issued a trespassing warning for Lentz regarding the strip club.

Lentz denies he did anything wrong at the strip club, saying he just was there “to discuss the potential sale of the property,” but the owner says Lentz got violent, threw a drink at a waitress, and tried chasing her behind the bar.

And then, days after that video was released, Daytona Beach police put out another video showing Lentz getting in a brawl at a public restaurant months before the strip club incident in which Lentz fights the restaurant manager and allegedly punched him after thinking the manager insulted his sister. Lentz’s attorney insists “these matters are being blown out of proportion” and notes charges haven’t been filed in either instance.
