(EMAILWIRE.COM, August 31, 2015 ) Miami, FL -- According to Miami New Times, a Doral strip Club has been temporarily closed by authorities following an incident involving a Hialeah man and his 16-year-old daughter being patrons of the business. Hialeah Police say Jose Manuel Arguelles, 59, took his 16-year-old daughter and her teenage friend to the Pink Pony Gentleman's Club where he allowed the two underage girls to drink. smoke marijuana, snort cocaine, and then dance onstage. Upon learning of these illegal activities through the Hialeah
The investigation was sparked when the mother of Arguelles' daughter's friend saw a video of her daughter dancing onstage with a stripper. "There's drugs involved. There's minors. My daughter is only 16,and his daughter is 16, so we had no idea this man would be capable of bringing his own daughter there," said the mother, according to CBS Miami.
The mother alerted police, and her daughter reported to Hialeah Police Department that Arguelles had taken the girls to Pink Pony several times and that she witnessed Arguelles give his daughter drugs and alcohol on several occasions.
Arguelles has been arrested on charges of child neglect, allowing a minor to do cocaine and smoke marijuana, and eight counts of sexual performance by a child to promote sex. He is currently being held at Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center on a $45,000 bond. However, Arguelles' attorney tells the Miami Herald that he doesn't believe the charges of promoting sxual performances by a child will uphold in court due to the fact that all his client did was allow the girls to dance on a stripper pole. "This is just one of those cases where nobody read the statute," attorney Chris Mancini told the paper.
Doral code-compliance officers raided the Pink Pony Gentleman's club last week and ordered that the club close its doors. The owner have been given a week to bring their case before the magistrate to reopen the club's doors.
An associate from Miami Drug Rehab comments "It's a disgrace that this father took his underage daughter and her friend to this club on multiple occasions. What he probably fails to realize is that not only is this illegal, but he could also be fueling the start of a substance abuse problem in both of these girls. Starting the use of illegal substances at such a young age could cause the girls to develop a substance use problem. It is very common for drug abuse to stem from drug use at a young age.In addition to arresting Arguelles, I hope his daughter and her friend recieve some sort of drug counseling as a preventative measure for future substance use problems."
