Two adult clubs to face a judge this week

(WMC-TV) - Two Memphis adult clubs have dates with a judge this week after the District Attorney padlocked their doors over drug and prostitution charges.

Shelby County District Attorney Amy Weirich filed a nuisance petition Friday, closing Showgirls on Lamar Avenue after a nine-month undercover investigation.

During that time, investigators said they observed multiple instances of club dancers soliciting money for sex acts.  Dancers and staff were also seen making drug deals inside the club on several occasions.

Earlier this week, the District Attorney shut down Babes of Babylon for a second time over drug and prostitution charges.

Babes of Babylon is due in court Monday.  Showgirls is due in court Tuesday.
