Tailgating is an important part of going to see a sports event in person, and in the city of Detroit, that pastime also includes something called the Booty Lounge. The Booty Lounge is a low-rent strip-club on wheels, and it has been a somewhat shady part of the game-day experience in Detroit since 2005.

Owners of the mobile strip club were likely hoping for a big payday thanks to a Lions appearance on the NFL's Monday Night Football, but instead, the bus was impounded by Detroit Police. Detroit's NBC affiliate reports that the bus was towed way because it was parked illegally, the driver didn't have a commercial license and the vehicle wasn't inspected by the Michigan Department of Transportation. The fuzz reportedly weren't targeting the rolling tribute, but the bus recently came under fire after a local TV station uncovered the goings-on inside the bus.

The Booty Lounge will reportedly be cleared to exit the impound once it provides proof of inspection, but we're getting the feeling that this tailgater is going to be sitting out a quite few more games. Click past the jump to watch Sports Time Out's coverage of the Booty Lounge.

      Isn't this about "A" typical Police work. This thing has been around the same area since '05 and the police learn about it on T.V.? Now that's what I call hard nosed detective work. If they were to practice police work instead of shooting radar and looking for non working tag lights to earn a quick buck,, they might had noticed this bus before it was on T.V. I hope it goes back to where it was. If ya don't wan to see something like this,, stay the hell out. If you do enjoy this kind of thing,, have at it. Who knows,, it would probably be another 6 years before they knew it was back !!

      They could always go to the next NASCAR race and sell "lap" dances.

      It's ok to own a gun but can't have a strip joint on wheels? What's the harm? That city needs something to cheer them up!
