Man faked beating at Queens strip club
A surveillance video revealed a Queens man's story of being beaten by a strip club bouncer was less than truthful, New York police said.
Khuran Murtaza, 34, called police when he was thrown out of the Rouge Gentleman's Club in the Maspeth section of the borough shortly before 1 a.m. Tuesday, the New York Post reported Sunday.
They said the video showed Murtaza smashing his face against a car, cutting his own nose.
Police charged Murtaza with falsely reporting an incident, a spokeswoman for Queens District Attorney Richard Brown said.
