Canton Ohio Bar Caught in Topless Midget Oil Wrestling Sting

City officials yanked the liquor license of a bar in Canton, Illinois, for what they call "topless midget oil wrestling."

The Outskirts Bar and Grill hosted the wrestling event last month.
Outskirts Bar and Grille in Canton Illinois hosted a "midget wrestling event". As if that weren't enough to grab attention and to bring in business, the event was also topless female midgets. How could an event get more exciting than this? Was it a ladder match? Or a hardcore match in which the participants can use chairs, chains, garbage cans, and practically anything to bash your opponent? This event didn't belong in a bar; it belonged on worldwide pay per view television. Why was I not notified of this event? They must have not advertised the event on the radio, highway billboards, etc. but it is getting some attention now. The city liquor commission voted and passed a 60 day ban of the Outskirts Bar and Grille liquor License. Two whole months of no alcohol at a bar could prove to be fatal for the business.

The wrestling event was part of the Micro Wrestling Federation. That's right, there is a Micro Wrestling Federation, which seems wrong on many levels. Owner Kim Scott claims that she was outside smoking while two oiled up midget women were wrestling. Apparently the women were not "scheduled" to be wrestling topless. When Scott entered the building and witnessed this spectacular spectacle (sorry couldn't help myself) she put an end to the madness by stopping the bout. City liquor licenses of the city do not permit nudity, and therefore were subject to suspension.

Owner Kim Scott is appealing the ruling to the State Liquor Commission. "I have bartenders with families," she said. "They just lost their jobs." When city attorney Chrissie Peterson files an official notice to Outskirts Bar and Grille, the suspension will start. The notice is expected to be issued this week

At one point during the event, one of the performers took off her top. The owner says she didn't know about it and quickly stopped everything once she found out.

The bar will lose its license for two months because city officials say the event violated an ordinance. The owner is in the process of appealing the ruling.
