Cops: Teens got lap dances at party for N.Y. boy, 16

SOUTH GLENS FALLS, N.Y. — Exotic dancers performed lap dances on teenagers at a boy’s surprise 16th birthday party in an upstate New York village, police said, and investigators were trying to determine whether any organizer of the celebration committed a crime.

South Glens Falls Police Chief Kevin Judd said the investigation began after people concerned about the Nov. 3 party at a bowling alley told authorities about racy photos that had been posted on social networking sites.

‘‘Several kids at the party got lap dances,’’ Judd said. ‘‘We have a lot of people to talk to.’’

Saratoga County District Attorney James Murphy said investigators were trying to determine who hired the dancers and if the alley served alcohol to any of the partiers.

The teens and dancers ­aren’t targets, he said, but child endangerment is among the potential charges faced by any adults who organized the party. Also, the bowling alley’s liquor license could be revoked if it knowingly allowed the exotic dancing or served alcohol to anyone under age, he said.
