Male Strippers Stop an Armed Robbery With Their Bare Hands and Chests

An armed meth head was no match for Australia's premier male stripping troupe, the Thunder From Down Under, who recently took a gunman down thanks in part to the strength of their "dynamic dance routines, barely there costumes, state-of-the-art lighting and chiseled abs."

According to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, an unidentified male between 25 and 30 broke into the Thunder From Down Under dressing room at the Excalibur Hotel in Las Vegas and stole some of the performers' personal belongings.

According to an arrest report, the man, who is being identified only as a "John Doe," was witnessed wandering around the backstage and auditorium area of the show wearing a SWAT hat and shoes and a firefighter's shirt.

Several people noticed him but just assumed he was a new dancer.

When performers noticed their makeup and costumes were missing, they confronted him and tackled him to the floor. At some point he pulled out a firearm.

The gun was fired during the struggle, but police said no one was hit. One person received a powder burn from the impact of the shot and was treated at the scene.

According to FOX, the show went on with its regular performance the next night.
