Detroit (Free Press) -- The city of Detroit is determining whether a mobile strip club called the Booty Lounge can legally park and operate downtown during Detroit Lions games.

On Wednesday Detroit Police Chief Ralph Godbee Jr. said the department will investigate any potential illegal activity related to the bus and "make sure we take the appropriate enforcement action."

Local news reports have indicated a photo surfaced of two police officers standing with a woman from the bus.

Godbee said that does concern him, but he didn't want to "pass judgment" on the photo until a complete investigation was conducted.

"Frankly, in large events, people in general, they like to take pictures with police officers," he said. "To pass judgment on the photo without having an opportunity to really do an investigation, I don't think would be fair at this point."

Detroit Mayor Dave Bing also weighed in on the controversial bus situation this morning, saying he is also concerned.

"Yes it is a concern because, you know, the games are basically for families and to have something like this going on, it is not appropriate," he said.

Detroit Police spokeswoman Eren Stephens said today that in addition to parking in Eastern Market during Lions' games, the bus is posting on its Facebook page that it travels elsewhere in southeast Michigan.

"We're looking at the whole operation, not just that they're going to every game," Stephens said.

Pictures on the Booty Lounge Facebook page show scantily clad women hanging off a stripper pole inside a red school bus-type vehicle.

Stephens said the investigation alleges that the operators of the bus are "accepting donations of $10" for guests to board while it is parked.

No one responded to a message sent to the Booty Lounge Facebook page asking for comment.
