FBI says strip club owner wanted hit men to kill mayor4/12/2012
What do you do when city officials file a nuisance lawsuit against your business? Try hiring Mexicans to murder them for $10,000, of course -- that'll take care of the whole hassle. Ryan Walker Grant, co-owner of the Flashdancer strip club in Arlington, Tex., stands accused of plotting to kill Mayor Robert Cluck and contract city attorney Tom Brandt after officials filed a lawsuit forcing his gentleman's club to temporarily close.
With the signature eloquence of any titty bar owner, he allegedly told one hit man: "They just jacked me for a year of business, and they're trying to jack me indefinitely." Grant's dad, however, insists his son would never hurt anyone.
