Wisconsin bar ends event after kidnap attempt

By  | 

APPLETON, Wis. (AP) -- A Wisconsin bar has ended its weekly "Lingerie Night" after police say a frequent patron tried to kidnap a bartender.

Police tell Post-Crescent Media (http://post.cr/1rj3vzr ) that Dennis Mitchell of Appleton approached the bartender as she walked to her vehicle and tried to put a bag over her head. He ran away after neighbors responded to her call for help.

The owner of the Eager Beaver Bar decided to stop hosting the event featuring scantily clad bartenders after Mitchell's arrest. She says the incident is an isolated issue.

A neighbor of the bar is attempting to shut it down permanently. She says loud music and fighting have been common occurrences throughout the bar's four years of operation.

Mitchell is being held on $50,000 bond and is expected to return to court Thursday. He has requested a public defender.
