Man Arrested for Slapping Employee at Exotic Dance Club
A Decatur man is charged with aggravated battery after, police say, he slapped an employee at Deja Vu in Springfield Wednesday.
According to the police report, Donald Phillips, 46, slapped a female employee three times on the right side of her face. The employee was sitting at a table with Phillips and another man at the time.
While being escorted from the club, the report says, Phillips punched another employee multiple times in the face.
Neither employee was injured.
The police report says Phillips identified himself as a Decatur police officer, but a Macon County Dispatcher said they had no officers by that name.
