Pool and Nightclub Arrests in Las Vegas – Attorney Ross Goodman

Las Vegas Nightclub Arrests

Most of the major hotel-casinos and almost all of the nightclubs and gentlemen clubs host and promote incredible, even wild so-called “adult” parties, including daytime “pool parties,” where alcohol freely flows and music never stops. Often, the guests and visitors in these events can’t help but think that here anything does go. Take note though that the security personnel at the entrance and in the premises are working closely with the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department. They help the police arrest people who break the law. They check people admitted into these parties for drugs and weapons and they patrol the bathrooms and hallways for ongoing illegal activity. The search they conduct is considered legal because they are not officers nor agents of government. It is unfortunate that a lot of those who have been involved in nightclub arrests are just regular folks who have jobs, families and reputation to protect who just wanted to have some fun but who happened to be at the wrong place at the wrong time.
