HOUMA, LA (WVUE) -

The Louisiana Office of Alcohol and Tobacco Control has suspended the liquor license of a Houma bar after undercover agents claimed that prostitution and drug deals were conducted inside.

Officials ordered the suspension of alcohol sales on Friday at the Wet and Wild Saloon, located at 795 Highway 182 in Houma. ATC agents said they received “considerable evidence” from the Terrebonne Parish Sheriff’s Office.

Undercover agents with the sheriff’s office said they were able to purchase marijuana, crystal meth and ecstasy on four different occasions at the bar. Deputies say the agents were also able to set up three different prostitution deals with entertainers employed at the location.

The ATC cited the business for allowing entertainers to improperly expose themselves and engage in lewd and immoral acts; failure to report a manager; failure to keep employee records; violations of live entertainment restrictions; and improperly allowing employees to solicit drinks from patrons for a fee.

The owners, Lance and Rachel Smiley, were arrested by Terrebonne Parish Sheriff’s Office for promoting prostitution, pandering, nudity and keeping a disorderly place.

The Wet and Wild Saloon recently made headlines in July. Several employees of the bar were arrested on prostitution and drug charges. Nine suspects were arrested in the July 30 bust.
