Picture it: You finally schedule a date night. Sitter, reservations, everything’s all set up. You and your partner are enjoying a lovely meal at a Japanese teppanyaki steakhouse. Then all of a sudden a fellow patron begins offering your table a striptease. Delightful bonus, or horrifying nightmare scenario? Yep, there’s no way this doesn’t play out as the latter option.


Yet somehow, a drunken man in Clearwater, Florida thought that this was the way to go. The Tampa Bay Times reports that “Police said James Dylan Jordan, 24, drunkenly approached the couple in the Kobe Japanese Steakhouse on U.S. 19. Then he started taking off his clothes and dancing in front of the woman.”


According to court records, when she told him to stop, he threatened to fight her husband. The man was subsequently arrested on a charge of disorderly conduct in a public place and was released on $150 bond. Sounds like he could have also used that money to cover the couple’s dinner. Or pay for some top-notch erotic dance lessons.
