ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A nude woman, arrested outside a nightclub, claims she was a stripper there, despite ordinances greatly restricting stripping and nude dancing in Dougherty County.

On Tuesday, club owner Ulysses James said that he agreed with Dougherty County Police to cease all such activities at Club Parisian until they come to a clear understanding of local ordinances.

Police officers questioned two women outside Club Parisians early Sunday morning, and both claimed they were strippers at the club. But employees at Club Parisians said they are lying.

Video from Club Parisians Facebook page shows where they promoted the club as North Florida and South Georgia's only source for upscale adult entertainment.

Around 1 a.m. Sunday, a nude 25-year-old Mycia Burden was arrested for disorderly conduct in the parking lot of the club.

"The complaintant, Ms Burden, she is the one who called. She actually called and complained on the club for kicking her out of the club," said Dougherty County Police Lt. Chad Kirkpatrick. "Once the officers made contact with her, she made a complaint where she had been in there stripping."

Police said Burden and another woman, Maeletha Robinson, told officers they were dancing and stripping at the club when they were kicked out for being rude to customers.

But club employees said Burden's claims aren't the case.

"Some of the people who work at the club said that when they placed her outside, out of the business, she had her clothes on and she took them off, and said she was going to try to get the club in trouble," Kirkpatrick said.

Burden claimed the club officials would not give her clothes back, but Police said Burden refused to stop yelling profanity and was arrested for disorderly conduct.

Because of the conflicting statements, Dougherty County Police have an open investigation into the club's activities now.

A man who claims he's the owner at Club Parisians wouldn't open the door when WALB knocked Monday, and said he had no comment.

Ulysses James was charged with operating a business without a license in July 2014 when officers were called to stop a fight.

Burden did speak briefly on the phone Monday, but she did not make any comments. She was released from the jail on $1,000 bond.

According to a report, Club Parisians does have a business license to operate as a nightclub, and has an alcohol license.
