Eatery leads city to consider changes to nudity definition

LEWISVILLE, Texas, July 16 (UPI) -- Officials in Lewisville, Texas, are discussing a redefinition of nudity law, after complaints about servers' attire at an eatery called Redneck Heaven.

Lewisville Community Relations Manager James Kunke said police received a complaint about the skimpy waitress attire at the restaurant and bar, and responding officers found female servers wearing only body paint and pasties over their breasts, CBSDFW.com reported Tuesday.

No action was taken because the restaurant did not violate any laws, but Lewisville Police Chief Russell Kerbow sent a memo to the city manager recommending a change to the city ordinance's definition of nudity or state of nudity.

"If any business were to decide to become a licensed Sexually Oriented Business then none of this matters for that particular establishment, but it applies here because the complaints were about a business that is licensed as a regular restaurant," Kunke said.

Kunke said officials will present the issue to the Lewisville City Council during Tuesday night's meeting.

"The only change that could be happening, if council wants to go that direction, is we would clarify the definition of opaque coverage. Everything else would stay the same," he said.

Redneck Heaven bosses did not return calls for comment, CBSDFW.com said.
