In a bizarre, though not totally unsurprising, turn of events, an El Paso man, 67, died in a strip club during a series of lap dances. Robert Gene White had reportedly received several lap dances at the Red Parrot, according to the manager, but when it came time to tip the dancers he was, “unresponsive.” At some point during the evening it became obvious that White was not ignoring them, but was really, really unresponsive, and employees called 911 while trying to perform CPR.

White was later pronounced dead of a heart attack at the hospital.
