PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — The licensing board in Providence has voted to shutter a well-known adult entertainment club after three dancers were arrested for allegedly offering to perform sex acts.

WPRI-TV reports the Providence Board of Licenses voted 3 to 1 on Wednesday to revoke the business licenses for the Foxy Lady, which forces the club to close.
Fausto Anguilla, an attorney for the Foxy Lady, said the club will likely appeal. The club has been open for decades.
